Mayoral Academic Scholarship Program

The Mayoral Academic Scholarship Program gives Port Stephens students starting TAFE or University in 2020 the opportunity to receive a $2000 scholarship to help cover the cost of their studies.

It is a partnership between Council and local businesses to support our next generation of business and industry leaders in Port Stephens.

The investment of one scholarship from a local business makes a big difference to a young person setting out on the next stage of their academic journey. Whether it is a year’s worth of textbooks, a laptop computer, or student accommodation — this contribution goes a long way to support local students and encourage life-long learning.

2020 Mayoral Academic Scholarships

The 2020 Mayoral Academic Scholarship Program is open from now until 17 January 2020.

In 2020, 18 scholarships valued at $2000 each generously sponsored by local businesses (listed below) will help local students realise their potential.

The scholarship presentation will take place at the Port Stephens Council Chambers on 17 February 2020.
