2022 NCWQ Bursary Program
All the bursary recipients have been advised of their success. (And in fairness to all, those who were not successful this year, are advised of that outcome, and we hope they consider applying next year.)
So now the processes are underway to liaise with sponsors and prepare for the presentation on 27 August. The E-Yearbook, commencing in 2020 with COVID impacts, continues, introducing the cohort of 2022 NCWQ bursary recipients.
Recipients are travelling from far and wide, including Townsville, Hervey Bay and Toowoomba to attend the presentation. We look forward to meeting you! For those not able to attend, options for Zoom, etc will be made to meet electronically.

About The Bursary Program
Established in 1905, the National Council of Women of Queensland Inc. (NCWQ) continues to represent the voice of thousands of women through its affiliated organisations and individual membership.
The bursary program, since its commencement in 2009, indicates the strong commitment of NCWQ to equality of opportunity for all women, especially in offering assistance to Queensland female students as they pursue their chosen pathway of study.
Last year’s program, through NCWQ and its sponsors, awarded a range of bursaries, to assist Queensland women with their educational expenses. Most bursaries are valued approximately $1,000 each. The 2022 Bursary recipients have been advised and will be announced at this year’s Presentation event 27 August.
