The 2020 Mayoral Academic Scholarships program will open for applications on 13 December 2019 and close on 17 January 2020. The 2020 scholarships will be presented to winners at the Port Stephens Council Chambers on 13 February 2020.

The 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.

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 goes 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 2020, 18 scholarships valued at $2,000 each  generously sponsored by local businesses (listed below) will help local students realise their potential.
