This is the first time the Wellington Shire Council Scholarship is being offered. Wellington Shire Council Mayor Ian Bye said it was a great opportunity for a resident of Wellington Shire to be able to undertake their studies close to home. "Many young students would love to undertake higher education but often the distance needed to travel to study means relocating, and this can be a huge barrier," Cr Bye said.

Full time students scholarship

Mayor Bye said, "With Federation University's Gippsland campus located in Churchill, the scholarship means we can encourage a student studying civil engineering to stay locally, and hopefully later gain employment locally. We welcome the chance to partner with Federation University to offer this scholarship for the first time."

The scholarship is open to full-time students who live in Wellington Shire and are commencing their studies in civil engineering. The recipient will also have the chance to undertake two to four weeks of paid employment with Wellington Shire Council during summer holiday periods.

Applications are open until 4 March 2022. For more information, visit Federation University's website.
