Real impact through opportunity

The Dafydd Lewis Trust provides equity and merit-based scholarships of $10,000 a year for three years. These are given to young men who might not have otherwise received a university education due to the limited financial resources of their parents. Every year, multiple scholarships are awarded for full-time undergraduate degrees in most courses at any university in Victoria.
