Every year the Kirner Kosky Scholarships support two female students from Melbourne’s west. As part of the scholarship, recipients receive mentoring from a female community leader.
The fund honours two leading Victorian women: former Victorian Premier the Hon. Joan Kirner, and former Victorian Education Minister the Hon. Lynne Kosky. These leading women have made significant contributions to education in both the western region and across Victoria.
The Kirner Kosky Scholarship Fund supports scholarships at VU in perpetuity, providing an enduring legacy that honours these inspiring women.
