Community grants and education scholarships up for grabs in Murrumbidgee 

Tuesday, 13 February 2024

Murrumbidgee Council’s annual community funding program is now open with grants available for community groups and scholarships for tertiary students.

Murrumbidgee Council Mayor Ruth McRae said we have three grant programs and a scholarship program that together inject $45,000 into the community.

“The scholarships are valued at $1,000 each and are open to students enrolled in a tertiary course (university, TAFE or another training provider) who have their home address in the Murrumbidgee Council area.

The grants are proudly funded by Murrumbidgee Council, Neoen Coleambally Solar Farm and the former Darlington Point Lions Club and are available to organisations located in or servicing the Murrumbidgee Council area.

Cr McRae said we have funded some outstanding projects in past years and are looking forward to seeing some great ones again this year,” she said.

Organisations across the Council area who meet the funding criteria can apply for the Murrumbidgee Council and/or Coleambally Solar Farm grants. The Lions Club grant is only available to Darlington Point community groups and individuals.

Applications and guidelines are available by visiting Council’s website or any of the Council offices. Applications close on Friday 15 March 2024 at 12.00 noon.
