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.
Applications for the Wayne Richards Sporting Scholarship are currently closed. Please check back here later in the year for more information on when applications will re-open.
For enquiries, please phone Jenny Mead on 6581 8111 or email.
