The Lewis Posner Boarding Scholarship is awarded to students from rural Victoria seeking to attend our Glen Waverley Campus boarding facility Learning in Residence.

This scholarship is available due to the generous donation of the late Lewis Posner (OW1925) and his sister Rozetta Lenzer.

Scholarship applications for 2023 entry are now open. Applications will close on 14 October 2023.
