Students going on to tertiary study this year still have time to apply for the 2024 Gunnedah Community Scholarship Fund.

The fund began 20 years ago and has seen more than 400 scholarships awarded worth close to $400,000.

The partnership between Gunnedah Shire Council and the community makes available scholarships for students who are seeking to further their education.

It is open to all local students under 25 years who are looking to further their training and education at university, TAFE, or an accredited training organisation. Past scholarships have covered a diverse array of courses including accounting, agriculture, allied health, animal science, law, architecture, arts/theatre, civil engineering, education, information technology, medicine, nursing and social work.

The scholarship can help with expenses including purchasing textbooks, relocation and other travel costs, living expenses, and contribution towards tuition fees.

Applications for the Gunnedah Community Scholarship Fund will close at 5pm on Friday, January 12, 2024.
