Gunnedah Community Scholarship Fund

The Gunnedah Community Scholarship Fund is an initiative of our local community and provides an opportunity for our local youth to succeed in their tertiary education by encouraging students to embark on a journey of lifelong learning by financially supporting those moving on to pursue tertiary studies.

The fund was established in 2003 and has assisted hundreds of local students over the many years. Scholarships have covered many disciplines including accounting, agriculture, allied health, animal science, law, architecture, arts/theatre, civil engineering, education, information technology, medicine, nursing and social work.

The fund is open to all local students under 25 years wanting to further their training and education at university, TAFE, or an accredited training organisation.

A scholarship can help with expenses like:

  • Purchasing textbooks,
  • Relocation and other travel costs,
  • Living expenses, and
  • Contribution towards tuition fees.

Gunnedah Community Scholarship Fund Applications have now closed

Applications for the 2025 round will open in late 2024.
