The end of the financial year is fast approaching, so now is the time to begin to plan for the new financial year ahead.

The new financial year brings fresh opportunities to look at your business plan and the opportunity to lay down some solid foundations for the year ahead.

Ever thought about becoming a sponsor of the Cessnock City Council Mayoral Scholarship Program and be part of the bigger picture for supporting our local economic future?

Cessnock City Council is seeking like-minded businesses to join us in our aim to grow and develop our people through supporting the Mayoral Scholarship Program.

The Mayoral Scholarship Program is an initiative of Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent to assist local residents in achieving their educational goals.

The objective of the Scholarship Program is to become a catalyst for developing the skills and knowledge of our residents and encourage them to reach their gainful employment in the Cessnock Local Government Area (LGA).

The Scholarships have been running since 2002 and have awarded 218 scholarships to the value of $545,000 to achieve their dream of either attending TAFE or University.

During this period, the project has promoted the image of sponsors in supporting youth, residents and jobs in our region.

Partner with Cessnock City Council in supporting the potential of our residents by providing financial assistance to aid them in achieving their academic, education and training goals.
