Education Sponsorship


Baw Baw Shire Council’s Education Sponsorship aims to encourage students in Year 9 and over (or aged between 15 -21 years) in their preferred education pathway by supporting local education providers with an opportunity to recognise and acknowledge attributes and effort.

Education Sponsorship is a stream of Council’s Community Financial Assistance Program that has invested over $630,000 in 2018/19.  It supports local secondary- and pathway-education providers to recognise and financially award students who meet the eligibility criteria.


Eligible Education Providers can nominate up to two students from Year 9, 10, 11 or 12, or aged between 15-21 years. All students are eligible for the first award. The second award is for a student who is Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander. Applications can be made in September for a November/ December presentation.

All students nominated have the opportunity to receive $250, a letter and certificate.
