Bur­sary pro­gram for ru­ral women

The Western Star - - NEWS -

FE­MALE stu­dents in high school and ter­tiary study will ben­e­fit from bur­saries of­fered by the Na­tional Coun­cil of Women of Queens­land this year.

The coun­cil has launched its 2018 bur­sary pro­gram to help women with their stud­ies.

“If you are a fe­male full-time stu­dent in your first year of a ter­tiary course, a res­i­dent of re­gional Queens­land who has re­lo­cated for ter­tiary stud­ies, and an Aus­tralian ci­ti­zen or per­ma­nent res­i­dent of Aus­tralia, you may be el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply for the 2018 NCWQ Re­gional/Ru­ral Bur­sary,” Mem­ber for War­rego Ann Leahy said.

“There is a wealth of in­for­ma­tion about a va­ri­ety of bur­saries … and I en­cour­age in­ter­ested women to in­ves­ti­gate the cri­te­ria and what is in­volved in the ap­pli­ca­tion process.

“Avail­able from my elec­torate of­fice is a schol­ar­ships guide which can also be of use to those who are pur­su­ing fur­ther train­ing and ter­tiary study,” Ms Leahy said.

To ob­tain a copy of the schol­ar­ships guide, email war­[email protected]­lia­ment.qld .gov.au or visit the coun­cil’s web­site.
