Scholarship Opportunity

SALT CREEK SCHOLARSHIP 

Founded by the Coy family in 1905, Salt Creek Merino Stud is renowned for its product and supplies premium-quality fine merino wool globally.

Since 2006, Director and 3rd generation owner Peter Coy has been working with Tilt Renewables and its predecessors to establish a new venture on the property in the form of a Wind Farm generating renewable energy capable of supplying 30,000 homes with electricity per annum. Construction of the Salt Creek Wind Farm commenced in September 2017 and was completed in late July 2018.

In recognition of the importance of education in our local community, the Salt Creek Wind Farm has established an annual Scholarship of $30K to a deserving local applicant who can illustrate the benefits the Scholarship can offer him/her.

The primary objective of the Scholarship is to provide the opportunity to potential Scholars who might not otherwise be able to manage a tertiary education as a result of the associated costs they face due to living away from home and supporting themselves close to their chosen place of study. Selection is based on personal qualities and demonstrated leadership as well as academic ability. Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed and successful candidates announced

Please find below the link to the Salt Creek Scholarship website, which is now live and accepting applications.
