Apply Now – Applications Close midnight Wednesday, 2 June
Applications continue to arrive for the 2021 NCWQ bursary program.
With the bursaries rapidly approaching the closing date of 2 June 2021, Team Bursary is on standby for the usual rush of last-minute applications. (2020 set the record of over 250 applications received in the last 36 hours!)
The Selection Panels are in place for the crucial selection process to determine the recipients of the 2021 NCWQ Bursaries. This is always a time-consuming and difficult task – there are so many inspiring stories that we have been privileged to have been told.
Recipients are determined by early July, with the bursary presentation set for Tuesday 3 August, at the Old Museum, Bowen Hills. After the COVID cancellation of this function last year, it is a much-anticipated event for 2021.
