The Gunnedah Community Scholarship Fund is an initiative of our local community and provides an opportunity for our local youth to succeed in their tertiary education by encouraging students to embark on a journey of lifelong learning by financially supporting those moving on to pursue tertiary studies.
The fund was established in 2003 and has assisted hundreds of local students over the many years. Scholarships have covered many disciplines including accounting, agriculture, allied health, animal science, law, architecture, arts/theatre, civil engineering, education, information technology, medicine, nursing and social work.
Gunnedah Shire Council is encouraging students currently considering their tertiary study options to apply for the 2022 Gunnedah Community Scholarship Fund.
The fund is open to all local students under 25 wanting to further their training and education at university, TAFE, or an accredited training organisation.
A scholarship can help with expenses like:
- Purchasing textbooks,
- Relocation and other travel costs,
- Living expenses, and
- Contribution towards tuition fees.
This year applications have been extended so students have time to wait for their HSC results and UAC offer before applying for a scholarship.
