Sporting montage - surfing, cycling, running, tennis

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.

Application Criteria 

Online applications for the 2018 Wayne Richards Sporting Scholarship will open Monday 19 March. Applications close on 30 September 2018. 

All finalists will be invited to attend a Port Macquarie Hastings Sports Awards presentation breakfast to be held at Panthers, Port Macquarie, on Friday 26 October 2018, where the recipient of the 2018 scholarship will be announced.
