The closing date for the Country Education Foundation of Gunnedah's (CEF) 2020 round of scholarships is only a week away.
The fund assists university and TAFE students who need to leave home to pursue tertiary education.
CEF supports a diverse range of education and career pursuits including apprenticeships, traineeships, cadetships, degrees, diplomas and certificate level studies or entry careers. The local foundation reimburses the student for a pre-agreed expense or pays the goods and services providers directly.
Grants are available to local youth who have lived and/or attended school in the region for the majority of their high school years.
The four essential selection criteria for the applicant are demonstrating financial need; aged 16-25 years; attended school or currently reside in the region covered by CEF Gunnedah; and shown commitment to achieving goals.
- Grant applications are open until November 30.
- Short-listed applicants will be invited for an interview with their local committee.
