Freemasonry is

Local students in need are benefitting from 10 new scholarships funded by the Central Coast Freemasons.

The Textbook Scholarships worth $500 each have been

provided for students enrolled in subjects unique to the University of Newcastle's Central Coast campus.


The inaugural recipients received their awards at a joint University and TAFE NSW – Central Coast Campus event during the University's Scholars week.

Central Coast Freemasons' President Gary Young said that the scholarships provided practical support for local students in need.

"We want to help students, particularly those who are academically sound yet find themselves in circumstances that make study quite a struggle."

"We are keen to help the community so these scholarships will make a long term difference to our local community, especially if we keep them going for three to five years," he said.


In a world often dictated by hate and segregation, membership of an organisation capable of uniting men of all religions, colours and even accents is more relevant than ever.
