Launched in 2004 by the Mayor's Sporting Fund Sub-committee, the Wayne Richards Sporting Scholarship was established as a tribute to the late former Mayor, Wayne Richards who was instrumental in the formation of the Mayor's Sporting Fund in 1999 and a passionate supporter of youth and sport in the Port Macquarie-Hastings region.
The annual $4,000 scholarship is designed to provide substantial financial assistance to a Port Macquarie-Hastings based athlete to pursue their sporting goals.
Upon the announcement of the successful recipient, the athlete receives $1,000. This is followed by three subsequent payments of $1000.
Online applications for the 2017 Wayne Richards Sporting Scholarship are now closed.
All finalists will be invited to attend a presentation breakfast to be held at Panthers, Port Macquarie, on 13 November 2017, where the recipient of the 2017 scholarship will be announced.
For enquiries, please phone Jenny Mead on 6581 8111 or email.
