This year’s year 12 students are encouraged to consider applying for The Aspire Program that recognises the positive impact made on the community through volunteering and leadership.
Students accepted into the Aspire Program will not only receive an early conditional offer in September, but will also benefit from having their ATAR lowered for their chosen La Trobe degree prior to the completion of their exams.
The university has also joined forces with a range of volunteering organisations, including the Country Fire Authority, St John Ambulance and the Duke of Edinburgh Awards to give secondary school students, who are also volunteers, priority access to university study.
“At La Trobe community contribution counts, which is why we want to recognise students who share our values through service that helps others,” vice-chancellor John Dewar said.
“La Trobe University is committed to ensuring students get the jobs they want, so they can forge a successful career and make a positive difference to the world in which we live.
“The Aspire program enables us to support the efforts of these inspiring young people whose values and ambitions align with ours. We welcome these leaders of the future in a wide range of professions to come and study at La Trobe University.”
