About this scholarship

Description/Applicant information

The Euroz Securities Scholarship aims to support students enrolled in the Western Australia School of Mines, either in an undergraduate or post-graduate degree.

The Euroz Group has been a beneficiary of strong investment markets and a strong local economy since its inception in 2000. This prompted us to consider ways in which we could make a contribution to the broader community. As a result the Euroz Charitable Foundation was formed in 2007. The Foundation represents our ongoing commitment to the Western Australian comunity.
