Academic bursary

Mackay Regional Council’s Academic Bursary program was established in 2011 to support students from the Mackay area to kick-start their careers in the region.

A total of five bursaries are offered each year, which provide students with $5000 monetary assistance over two years to help with costs associated with studying, as well as the opportunity for paid work experience with Mackay Regional Council.
