The role of the Wellington Community is to build a supportive life-long community. We have developed a global professional and social network, deliver a diverse programme of events and offer invaluable careers support, guidance and mentoring opportunities. A major part of our work is to also raise funds for our life-changing Prince Albert Foundation Scholarship programme (PAF) – to ensure we continue to be able to offer places to more young people with talent and promise the amazing opportunities that a Wellington education provides.

WIDENING OPPORTUNITY AT WELLINGTON

Prince Albert Scholarship Programme

Talent is spread evenly throughout society, but opportunity is not.

We want to do what we can to address this disparity and support access and opportunity for more young people in our community and beyond. Our College Community is enriched by having a bright, ambitious, talented and inclusive student body.

Welly Giving Week 2023

Celebrating widening access and opportunity

Thank you so much for making Welly Giving Week 2023 such a wonderful success! Your incredible support means we are able to offer 16 more young people a life-changing Prince Albert Scholarship. This is an incredible achievement and will change the lives of these young people, their families, friends, and the wider Wellington Community.
