Scholarship winners Amanda Wilkinson, Hayley Whitmore, Joanne Dean and Kimberley Johnston were presented with their awards by Cr Don Pember.

The City of Mandurah has awarded more than $18,000 to 18 nursing students at Peel Campus since 2010. Cr Pember also presented the 2015 Coolibah Total Caring nursing scholarship to Chanelle Hinder.

A report recommends increasing the council�s contribution to the scholarships from $4000 to $8000 per year for the next three years.
