Tertiary Scholarships

The Mayor's Education Fund

Applications are invited annually for the Circular Head Council Mayor's Education Fund. The scholarship was established in 2002 to assist a Circular Head resident to engage in further study by helping offset some of their costs.

One $5,000 Bursary is awarded each year. Applicants are required to demonstrate that they would find it difficult to access further education without the funding support.

To be eligible, you must be able to demonstrate to the Selection Committee:

  1. That without support from the fund, he/she would experience hardship or find it difficult to access further education.
  2. That you have explored other avenues of assistance.
  3. How you would be able to assist the Circular Head Education and Training Consultative Committee to promote further education in Circular Head and the benefits of the Mayor’s Education Fund.
  4. Preference may be given to candidates choosing to study at the University of Tasmania (UTAS) or another Tasmanian facility unless there is a reason for choosing an interstate campus.
