By Kathy Cavanagh, Bursaries Coordinator

The 2017 Bursary Program culminated with the presentation to recipients on Wednesday 26th July. Always a special event, it was enhanced this year with the presence of His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland and NCWQ Patron.

The room was abuzz with a sense of pride, empowerment and empathy as recipients accepted their bursaries, along with self -acceptance of their success.

With the 2017 program the biggest yet in the number of bursaries and applications, NCWQ thanks our sponsors for ensuring the program its continued success.

Along with the support of the three levels of government and organisations, individuals’ sponsorships epitomised the diversity of the program, from young women starting out, to now-retired women who forged the way for others to follow.

We wish all recipients well as they complete their studies along their individual journeys towards their goals, aspirations and passions.

Watch out for updates as we showcase stories of recipients during the coming months.
