Mulgrave Country Club Scholarship Presentation
John Milledge Award

Mulgrave Country Club hosted its nineteenth annual scholarship presentation on Monday night. It was recently renamed after past president John Milledge who passed away in 2018. Twelve local schools were each awarded a $2000 scholarship, presented by Cr Robert Davies and Club President, Peter Delaney. The successful recipients were from Caulfield Grammar, Rowville Secondary College, Brentwood Secondary College, Wellington Secondary College, Mazenod College, Wheelers Hill Secondary College, Carwatha College, Wesley College, Avila College, Nazareth College, Glenallen School and Emerson School.

The scholarship was awarded to a worthy year 11 student entering year 12 studies. The criteria for the chosen recipient was not purely based on academic or sporting ability, but also financial hardship, personal sacrifice, citizenship and potential leadership.

Mulgrave Country Club is a community-based sporting, social and recreational club offering members a wide range of sports including lawn bowls, tennis, squash, cricket, social golf, snooker and darts.

The Mulgrave Country Club offers financial assistance to many other clubs, charity organisations, schools and individuals through donations and sponsorships. A total of $352,900 has been injected into the school scholarship scheme since its inception. Over the last 10 years Mulgrave Country Club has donated in excess of $1,828,706 in cash sponsorships and donations.

Congratulations to all the recipients of the 2018 Mulgrave Country Club Scholarship Award. Thirteen Year 11 students going into Year 12 from thirteen schools in our local community were each presented with a $2,000 cheque.

With the recipients are Leon Ross (President) and Robert Davies (Monash Councillor).
