J R Mckenzie Youth Education Fund
Founded by the late Sir John McKenzie in 1938 to help deserving young people to receive education, where death, sickness, family break up or economic hardship cause difficulty for young people and their caregivers to meet the costs of their education. The J R McKenzie Youth Education Fund is one of the trusts established by the McKenzie Family from the success of the McKenzies Department Stores and is administered entirely by Rotary.
Applications related to a young person’s education are considered and grants distributed to the most deserving cases through the applicant’s nearest Rotary Club. The Fund will not cover general tuition fees. Depending upon individual circumstances, grants may cover;
School uniforms and clothing and footwear.
Special tuition or course fees.
Text books and stationery.
Special grants especially for glasses or to help students with special needs.
Grants are available to individuals, not organisations and additional information may be requested.
