The Coffs Harbour Cultural Youth Scholarship is administered by the Cultural Trust to assist young emerging artists in all art forms in their chosen field.
Applicants can seek assistance in attending one off specialist courses or workshops inside or outside the Coffs Harbour area, which will further their long-term career aspirations in the creative arts.
The funding is available to residents of the Coffs Harbour local government area, aged between 13 to 21 years of age, with applicants applying for a representation scholarship of up to $500 or a scholarship for further study up to $1,000.
Mhairi Gorman, the first recipient of a Coffs Harbour Cultural Trust Youth Scholarship, was able to take part in a dance festival in the US, thanks to our support.
“Prosper Coffs Harbour really made a difference by making the cost of flights much more achievable for me. I have made many new friends from around the world and feel my confidence as a dancer has increased so much from this experience. Thank you so much for your support.”.. Mhairi Gorman
