Educational Development


Council supports lifelong learning within the Burnie community by encouraging educational development.

We have an Educational Bursaries and Awards policy which has two primary objectives:

a) To recognise the contributions and educational excellence of primary, secondary and post-secondary students within Burnie through the provision of educational awards; and

b) To support a Burnie student to pursue tertiary education by awarding an annual bursary to one person commencing study at the University of Tasmania (UTAS).

This includes all primary schools, secondary schools, post-secondary schools within the Burnie municipality, as well as Burnie residents applying to study at UTAS.

Please refer to the Educational Bursaries and Awards policy below to see which schools are included and the range of awards available.

Applications for the UTAS Bursary should apply to the University Foundation.
