Under the Rural and Remote Rewards scheme, scholarships will be offered to 60 new teachers if they accept a posting at one of more than 150 eligible rural and remote public schools.

The new scholarships, available to HSC or university students, also include $7500 a year to help students with their studies, along with a $6000 bonus for relocation costs.

Education Minister Rob Stokes said country schools are the foundation that rural communities are built on.

“This means no matter the town, wherever there are children, it must remain our priority to ensure there are well-staffed and well-resourced public schools,” Mr Stokes said.
