The Penny Pether Scholarship

Applications for 2022 are open. Please ensure you have completed your application for residency before applying.

Thanks to the generosity of the Pether Family; including Betty Pether, Peter Pether (fr 79) and Louise Mitchell (fr 79), The Penny Pether Scholarship is awarded each year to a young woman from regional or remote Australia that can demonstrate financial need.

The Scholarship is awarded by the Pether family in memory of Penny Pether, a first year student at Wesley College in 1976. Penny was an accomplished lawyer, teacher and writer, and was much loved by her Wesley family.

The Penny Pether Scholarship is awarded as part of the Centenary Scholarship initiative by the Wesley College Foundation, and is given as a half residential fees scholarship, provided as a discount off College fees.
