Language & Culture Award

The Sangora Education Foundation Languages Award was established in 1991 to provide the opportunity for high achieving Year 12 Language students to continue their study of other languages and cultures. The award is made to the Year 12 student whose application in the opinion of the trustees of the award appears most likely to make a significant contribution to the student’s and community’s understanding of other languages and cultures. The award may be divided between applicants whose applications are in the opinion of the trustees of equal merit.

Year 12 students with proven ability in the study of languages who intend to study a Language other than English at university or TAFE are encouraged to apply for the award.

Normally schools are contacted in July each year through the teacher in charge of languages and invited to encourage suitable students to apply. However, owing to financial constraints, this award will not be offered in 2016.
