2023 Mayoral Scholarship Program

Mayoral Scholarship 2023 2

Cessnock City Council's Mayoral Scholarship Program is an initiative of Mayor, Councillor Jay Suvaal, that assists local residents financially to achieve their educational goals at TAFE or university.

The objective of the program is to help residents of the Cessnock Local Government Area (LGA) advance their education and reach their full potential, particularly in the industries offering gainful employment in the Cessnock LGA, such as hospitality, tourism, education, engineering, medical, mining, communications and manufacturing. While many factors influence career selection, it is our goal to have as many residents as possible achieve their higher education and career aspirations.
