The City of Kwinana invites local young people to apply for an Educational Scholarship for the 2019 school year. The City is awarding 16 scholarships from $300 to $800 to assist young people with the purchase of educational related materials.
The City's LyriK (Leadership Youth, Respect in Kwinana) Scholarship Program aims to recognise the educational achievements of local students and encourage the attainment of entry level qualifications and further education. This is an opportunity for students to gain some financial support as they transition through their schooling.
Mayor Carol Adams said, "At the City we value the importance of education, and aim to provide the youth of Kwinana with the best opportunities available. The City will continue to assist in raising the educational standard by helping young people increase their opportunities in the competitive employment market. We hope these scholarships will assist in some way to achieve this outcome."
Scholarships are awarded to students entering years 7 ($300), 11 ($375) and 12 ($400) and to those students finishing year 12 and continuing onto higher education ($800).
"The City is proud to offer Educational Scholarships each year to hardworking young people in Kwinana. These Scholarships are designed to help ease the financial burden for students and their families, assisting with school fees and the purchase of books and supplies." Said Mayor Carol Adams.
Applications for The City's LyriK Scholarship Program open Monday 8 October and close Friday, 9 November 2018. Students can apply online here.
