Mentor Support Network
Every year, Mentor Support Network awards scholarships and support to students in financial need.
Nearly 490 scholarships totalling $850,000 have been presented to students in the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland and Port Stephens areas.
The Mentor Support Network educational scholarships program has been in operation since the first awards for studies in 2008.
Educational scholarships are designed to assist eligible students aged 15 years and over to reach their full potential in terms of their individual educational and career goals.
Each year, for determined students who are experiencing financial hardship, we offer educational scholarships of up to $2,000 each.
They are granted to students who demonstrate the drive and determination to achieve educational goals, despite experiencing financial need.
Educational scholarships are not necessarily awarded because of academic achievement to date, but rather because of a student’s demonstrated desire to achieve educational goals.
