The new TDA National Scholarships Foundation incorporating the highly-regarded Mick Young Scholarships for disadvantaged students will be formally launched at a special dinner in Sydney on Friday 1 March 2013.
The TDA National Scholarships Foundation is aimed at widening the opportunities for financially disadvantaged students to undertake vocational and technical education courses under the government’s new entitlement to training – due in most states and territories during 2013-14.
“Mick’s Big Night Out” will be a night to remember. Confirmed guests include the Governor of NSW, Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir AC CVO, the Deputy Prime Minister and Treasurer the Hon Wayne Swan MP, and former prime minister, Bob Hawke AC.
Guests will be entertained by some of Australia’s finest comedians, musicians and political satirists including Fiona O’Loughlin, Rob Carlton, Bryan Dawe and Tim Freedman.
