Dorset Council provides eight scholarships annually for local community members to further their education. These have been named in honour of the late Mayor Barry Jarvis, who was a strong advocate of education in Dorset. Applications for 2018 are now CLOSED.
Congratulations to Shania Falls, Ayla Lette, Zali Stevens, Grace Chugg and Phoebe Singline, who were all awarded one of the Barry Jarvis Educational Scholarships by Mayor Greg Howard in 2017.
