Tyson Doneley Scholarship The Tyson Doneley Scholarship will be a high honour for its recipients. It would be a sought-after award for worthy young people who would not otherwise have had the opportunity for an education at Chevalier College in the MSC tradition.   As well as a financial means test, the criteria for awarding the scholarship would include seeking the attributes and aptitude of diverse active involvement in school life that Tyson Doneley himself encouraged and exemplified.

The Chevalier College Foundation is reaching back some 50 years in time to invite students, staff and families who were part of that era to support this scholarship.


To enable the scholarship endowment to be perpetual in nature, especially if it is to support a number of students, a large capital sum needs to be raised from which annual interest can be drawn to fund the bursary.

All donations over $2 to the Chevalier Scholarship Fund are tax deductible.
