The Sir Roden and Lady Cutler Foundation Inc Scholarship
The Sir Roden & Lady Cutler Foundation Inc. (“the Foundation”) Board recently approved the introduction of a scholarship to be offered to a deserving current or incoming Year 11 Sydney Boys High School student.
The scholarship is awarded to a student at Sydney Boys High School for study in Years 11 and 12 and is valued at $1,500 per annum for two years. To be eligible for the award of a Sir Roden and Lady Cutler Scholarship (“the Scholarship”) the applicant must be enrolled in the school at the closing date for applications each year, 30 November.
Sydney Boys High School will administer the Scholarship on behalf of the Foundation. Applications for the Scholarship are assessed by a Scholarship Committee, comprising members of the executive of Sydney Boys High and the CEO of the Foundation or nominee. Applications are assessed on the basis of the selection criteria. The Scholarship Committee may give preference to an applicant with a demonstrated record of service to others at school and/or in the wider community over a number of years, or outstanding service in one year. The Scholarship Committee may favour applicants who have a record of initiative, compassion for others and demonstrated leadership skills.
The Scholarship Committee makes recommendations of suitable applicants for the Scholarship to the Foundation’s Board. The successful applicant will be awarded his Scholarship at Presentation Night each year. The Scholarship funds are to be spent within the school via a debit ‘Cutler Card’. The successful applicant will automatically have his Scholarship renewed in Year 12 under the same terms and conditions unless he is no longer of good standing with Sydney Boys High School. If a Scholarship recipient fails to uphold the expectations and values of the Scholarship in Year 11, the Scholarship Committee may discontinue the Scholarship for that student in Year 12.
The Sir Roden & Lady Cutler Scholarship is awarded to a Year 11 student who has demonstrated leadership, initiative, courage, compassion and a commitment to service to both those around him and the wider community, despite any personal hardships, financial or otherwise.
Additionally, applications are invited from eligible incoming Year 11 students. Application Forms are available on the school’s website from 1 July each year.
