The ANN MANNING SCHOLARSHIP AWARD is awarded annually at GEALC’s End of Year Certificate Ceremony (held in December) to the student who not only demonstrates outstanding achievement and participation, but also financial hardship that impacts on their ability to study. The award is open to students who are not eligible for government support.

Since 2005, Ann has made an exceptional contribution to the success of the Glen Eira Adult Learning Centre (GEALC).  As a dedicated Education Coordinator and Tutor, Ann has transformed the learning experiences of students and set an example for teacher excellence.

This special award honours the significant contribution Ann made over 18 years as GEALC’s  Education Coordinator and her passion to empower learners to achieve their true potential.  This scholarship will enable the worthy recipient to pursue their studies at GEALC without the financial burden and empower them to achieve the best outcomes for their future aspirations.
