Through the Geraldton Universities Centre’s Hollomby Foundation, the City of Greater Geraldton has granted two $2,000 scholarships to local tertiary students assisting them in completing their studies.

Bachelor of Psychology student Terri Jackson and Bachelor of Education (Secondary) Jordon Lorgie were the deserving beneficiaries of this year’s scholarships.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn offered his congratulations and support for the program.

“Since 2010 the City has recognised the importance of supporting students through the Hollomby Foundation so they may continue their studies locally and we may retain our local talent,” he said.

“Students form a vital part of our community and help maintain Geraldton as a vibrant, progressive and attractive place to live.

“Congratulations to this year’s recipients, we wish you the best of luck with your studies and future endeavours.” 

Geraldton Universities Centre Director Natalie Nelmes expressed her gratitude to the City.

“It is so vital that we receive these scholarships for our students from local donors through the Hollomby Foundation,” she said.

“We can’t thank the City of Greater Geraldton enough for this contribution as it makes all the difference to our students.” 

This year’s winners have said they will use the funds to help pay for items such as laptops and to help cover living costs so they may focus on their studies.
