The Gunnedah Community Scholarship Fund, an initiative of our local community, provides an important opportunity for our youth to pursue their tertiary education.
The fund commenced in 2003, and was established in part as a constructive response to the alarming facts presented by Professor Ingrid Moses (former Vice Chancellor of UNE Armidale) that this region has one of the lowest post-secondary education retention rates in the country. This initiative is the only known fund of its kind in NSW, which is a great initiative for the Gunnedah Community.
It is only through the generous donations from members of our local community that we are able to continue to offer financial scholarships to our young people who wish to undertake further studies. 100% of all donations are distributed directly to our local students.
