ADRA Op Shop MHS University Scholarships

The Morisset ADRA Op Shop Morisset High School Scholarship encourages Year 12 students and former students of Morisset High School to enter and complete their tertiary education.

The Scholarship has been funded by the generous support of the Morisset ADRA Op Shop since 2019 and has supported many past Morisset High School students to continue their learning and skills development journey at our local universities - the University of Newcastle and Avondale University.
