Mayoral Academic Scholarships

The Mayoral Academic Scholarships for 2019 were awarded on 14 February, please read the media release or view the 2019 recipients list.

The 2020 program will open for applications in December 2019.

The Port Stephens Mayoral Academic Scholarships program is a partnership between Port Stephens Council and local businesses to support the next generation of business and industry leaders in Port Stephens as they embark on their tertiary study.

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 text books, a laptop computer, or student accommodation – this contribution will go a long way to support local students and encourage life long learning.

Each year, the Mayoral Academic Scholarships Program offers scholarships to students from across the Port Stephens Local Government Area, embarking on their first year of tertiary study. In 2019, 16 scholarships valued at $2,000 each were generously sponsored by local businesses (listed below) wanting to help students realise their potential.
