Youth Scholarship Program Supporting Youth Education and Aspiration
The Youth Scholarship Program, established by Lithgow Youth Council and funded by Centennial Coal, is now open to all local students aged between 16-25 years who are attending TAFE or university in Lithgow, Bathurst or the Blue Mountains.
The scholarship offers $500 to young people experiencing financial hardship who wish to undertake further study.
“The scholarship aims to support local students enrolled at TAFE or university with the cost of fees, internet connection, books or other course related materials,” said Lithgow Mayor, Cr Lesslie.
“I congratulate our Youth Council for developing this program and hope it will lend a helping hand to young people while they study. I would also like to thank Centennial Coal for getting behind this much needed program,” concluded Cr Lesslie.
Scholarship applications will be open year round and awarded on a case by case basis. The program is flexible and allows students to apply at any time and on more than one occasion.
Interested applicants will need to submit the Youth Scholarship Application Form, along with other documentation, which can be found on Council’s website.
For further information about the eligibility criteria for the Youth Scholarship Program, please call Viktoria Gulabovski, Community Development Officer, on (02) 6354 9999, or visit Council’s website.
