Single Mothers Scholarship Program

Applications for this scholarship program is currently closed. We will re-open applications on Monday, the 2nd of October 2017. 

Dolph Business School has a proud tradition of supporting women through their learning and upskilling journey. We believe that by educating a woman, we are not just educating ONE PERSON, we are educating our FUTURE GENERATIONS.

In 2016, we established a scholarship program to support eligible single mothers with the cost of the tuition fees including the costs of the learning materials (such as workbooks and compulsory texts) of undergoing a certificate or diploma course with Dolph Business School.

We understand how challenging life can be, especially for single mothers. Whilst it may not be much, we hope this scholarship program is able to help single mothers achieve better for themselves, and their child(ren); and ease some of life’s pressures along the way.

We are also immensely proud of our team for coming up with this initiative and for having worked really hard to create a meaningful scholarship program for single mothers. We currently have provisions for 10 scholarships per year, however, we may award more than 10 scholarships per year as funds permit.

So, if you are a single mother and are interested in undertaking a certificate or diploma level course with us and could benefit from a scholarship, or you know of someone who could benefit from this scholarship, please feel free to share this link with them and we’d love to hear from them!
