Tiaro chamber is boosting careers
BUILDING a career can be made a little easier for first-year uni students with a helping hand from a supportive Tiaro group.
The Tiaro and District Chamber of Commerce was proud to announce its second bursary to help a student achieve their university dream of a degree in a business associated discipline.
Chamber president Darryl Stewart said members have again enthusiastically supported the bursary initiative.
"The annually awarded bursary is to the value of $1000 and is open to a first-year student currently living in what was division 1 and 2 of the former Tiaro Shire, or the former Woocoo Shire, and is enrolling in a business associated degree course,” Mr Stewart said.
"We want to encourage people from our rural and regional areas to build a career in successful business management.
"And successful businesses are vital in the growth of the Fraser Coast.”
Earlier this year, chamber members presented former Tiaro student Georgia Dale with the bursary.
The $1000 boosted Georgia's study of a Bachelor of Agribusiness/ Bachelor of Sustainable Agriculture at the University of Queensland.
"The intention of the bursary was to encourage our young people to further their studies in an effort to give them a good background into advancing and introducing more professionalism into regional business, especially in agriculture,” Mr Stewart said.
