Students win coveted scholarships

TWO Coffs Harbour Senior College students are well on their way to a successful career after being awarded prestigious Defence Technical Scholarships for 2010.

Year 11 students Nicholas Hoiles and David Harcombe will be given $2000, paid over two semesters towards their studies.

The Defence Technical Scholarship (DTS) is a boost for Year 11 and 12 students intending to pursue an ADF general entry technical trade career after completing Year 12.

The DTS rewards technically savvy students for staying on at school and enrolling in specific subjects.

Despite the scholarships being awarded by the Australian Defence Force, the boys have no obligation to join the Navy, Army or Air Force after finishing school.

Mr Hoiles and Mr Harcombe are two of the lucky ones – these scholarships are extremely competitive with applicants throughout Australia competing for the available opportunities.
