Jan Pentland Scholarships Now Open!

Applications and nominations are now open for the Jan Pentland Scholarship and the Jan Pentland Prize. Both will be announced at the Jan Pentland Dinner, coinciding with the Financial Counselling Australia conference in Hobart, on the evening of Tuesday 15th May.

The scholarship can be used to cover course fees, or associated costs of studying for students who need financial assistance to study, who show commitment to financial counselling and are likely to make a strong contribution to the sector. Last year, thanks to some funding from the Commonwealth Bank, the Jan Pentland Foundation was able to give out more than 10 scholarships. The scholarships cover up to $5,000 of the cost of studying for the Diploma of Financial Counselling.

The Jan Pentland Prize acknowledges outstanding achievement in financial counselling and/or consumer advocacy or achievement in undertaking law reform, campaign work, community development, and/or community education. The Prize of $1,000  is funded by Jan’s partner, David Morawetz.


You’ll find the online nomination form for the scholarship  and the nomination form for the prize  on the Jan Pentland website. Applications and nomination close on April the 3rd.
