TOYOTA ANNOUNCES NEW EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS
**Third year of scholarships and grants in Sydney's Sutherland Shire**
**Support in 2020 for 20 students attending 14 schools**
**Grants continue to support five Shire schools **
Toyota Australia has announced a third year of student scholarships and school grants aimed at breaking down barriers to further education in Sydney's south.
Toyota has held a close relationship to the Sutherland Shire community since the 1960s. When Toyota's Sales and Marketing Office moved from the Shire in 2017, the company pledged to leave a lasting legacy that would benefit the local community.
The 20 students from 14 schools awarded scholarships for 2020 are exploring careers in diverse areas including medicine, creative arts, veterinary science and photography.
Further grants will continue to support priority technology and literacy projects in five schools: Endeavour Sports High School, Dunlea Centre, Bates Drive School, Cook School and Minerva School.
Toyota Australia President and CEO Matthew Callachor said Toyota Australia partners with Schools Plus to provide the scholarships and grants, which brings together schools and corporate donors.
"I'm honoured that Toyota can help nurture the educational aspirations of these students," Mr Callachor said.
"We trust that our support over several years will play a role in helping young Australians achieve their full potential." he said.
