QCWA to award over $30,000 in bursaries to Qld students Applications now open
THE Queensland Country Women’s Association (QCWA) invites male and female secondary and tertiary students in Queensland to apply for a range of 2022 bursary offerings.
There are 22 bursaries on offer, each valued between $500 and $2,500.
The bursaries cover different ages and areas of study and provide financial assistance to students to enable them to pursue their educational goals. QCWA State President Sheila Campbell said the annual bursary campaign was one of the association’s great joys in being able to support the Queensland community.
“Education is a cornerstone of the QCWA, so we offer a number of bursaries every year to assist Queensland students with the cost of their studies,” she said.
For many self-funded tertiary students, driven to achieve their goal, the need to work while juggling academic study, assignments, tutorials, and exams is ever present.
“For some, one of the QCWA’s bursaries could mean the career-defining difference between continuing their studies or not.”
With 2022 being the milestone centenary of the QCWA there are five new QCWA Centenary Bursaries for students in Nutrition, Agriculture, Education, Physical Education and for an Apprenticeship. Each of these new bursaries is for $2500.
Some of the bursaries on offer include:
• Ruth Fairfax Memorial Bursary for rural studies (2 x $2,500)
• Audrey J Hoskin Music Bursary for vocal or instrumental studies (1 x $1,000)
• Greater Brisbane Daphne Dowdle Midwifery Bursary (1 x $1,000)
• Border Division for a mature age student (1 x $1000)
• Condamine Valley/Warwick Branch Bursary (3X $1500)
• Eumundi Branch Queensland Youth Orchestra Bursary for studying music at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music (2 x $600)
• Mallalieu Home Foundation Trust Scholarship for accommodation for music study (4 x $500).
