NCIG Supports Regional Educational program

Mentor Support Network (MSN), has welcomed a $10,000 sponsorship by Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group (NCIG) for its 2023 educational scholarship program.

Chair of MSN, Judy Hart, said NCIG was providing the funds through its Community Support Program which was established in 2010.

“It’s wonderful to see a company that has long supported community initiatives in the Hunter being involved in our scholarship program,” said Judy.

“MSN is delighted to receive word from NCIG about our successful application which is enabling us to provide 42 educational scholarships in 2023.

“Our scholarship applicants are entering Year 11 or the final years of their training/vocational studies at local institution such as TAFE. They are exceptional young people facing significant socio-economic and/or family challenges. Without financial assistance and support they would find completing their education to be an enormous challenge – and achieving their potential in the workforce and society a great barrier.

“If it wasn’t for the support of companies like NCIG we would not be able to provide such a valuable educational support service in the Hunter Valley,” said Judy.

Students are using their scholarships to purchase uniforms, books, home study equipment, computers, software and internet access as well as paying for excursions and fees.

MSN is planning a major ceremony in May to present the 2023 educational scholarship certificates to the group of 42 students.  

“NCIG’s funding is helping MSN assist disadvantaged students stay in school or in studies – the benefit not only being to the students, but to our community in general.”

“It’s wonderful news for the students and MSN – both the Network and NCIG are heavily involved with the community and it’s a partnership that is bringing educational and personal rewards,” added Judy.

NCIG is a privately owned business providing a premier coal export service and is an integral part of the Australian coal export industry.
