Our Scholarships

Tim Weight Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship has been established in memory of Tim Weight, a much-loved member of the TAFE Gippsland community who sadly passed away in December 2021. Tim was a giant of the region who made a significant contribution over a 30-year period to Gippsland’s vocational education and training sector as both an Executive and Non-Executive Director with TAFE Gippsland.

Tim’s significant expertise in strategic and stakeholder engagement saw him become a driving force behind TAFE’s renewed links to local and regional business and industry partners in Gippsland.

Tim also held various roles in agribusiness, property development and feasibility assessment, regional economic development, corporate management, strategy, and governance and held various positions as both an Executive and Non-Executive Director on boards of public and private companies, private syndications, government, and not-for-profit organisations.

Tim’s passion for the provision of high-quality vocational education and training throughout Gippsland has left a legacy and will now live-on through these important annual scholarships.
