Sixteen students were awarded educational scholarships on Friday, December 7, as part of the City of Kwinana’s decade-long LyriK Educational Scholarship program.

The LyriK program, sponsored by the City of Kwinana, Alcoa and Coogee Chemicals, offers financial scholarships to support students in their transition through schooling.

While the City received more than 60 nominations for the scholarship, only 16 were successful — including four students who are entering Year 7, four entering Year 11, four entering Year 12 and four scholarships for further education following high school.

Mayor Carol Adams said the City valued the importance of education and continued to provide the youth with the “best opportunities possible”. “The LyriK Educational Scholarship program is a fantastic initiative that not only highlights the exceptional youth in Kwinana, but fosters their development to go on and achieve greater success,” she said.
