Veolia Mulwaree Trust

The Veolia Mulwaree Trust manages and distributes funds to not-for-profit community groups and organisations for the benefit of the former Mulwaree Shire Council area, as well as its immediate surrounds. Violia's Woodlawn Eco-Precinct, previously a copper, lead and zinc open cut mine, is now the location of a Mechanical and Biological wind farming and other renewable technologies. In partnership with the Veolia Mulwaree Trust, Veolia is able to give back to the communities we operate in. Through the Trust, Veolia has supported local schools and preschools, sporting facilities, parks and playgrounds, emergency services, charities and community service organisations. The Trust also supports a range of academic and creative arts scholarships annually.

The recipient is expected to maintain satisfactory academic progress by passing all subject attempts and maintaining a Pass average (GPA 4.0 or greater) for the duration of the scholarship.

If any of the specified conditions are not met, the recipient status and continuation of the scholarship will be assessed and determined by the University in consultation with the donor.
