This year’s NCWQ bursary award ceremony was one to remember. Among the many special women being recognised for their achievements and talents, was Caitlyn Smith.
Receiving the NCWQ Boyce Disability bursary, Caitlin was recognised for her achievements in a number of areas.
Retired Senator Sue Boyce has been a long-term advocate for those with a disability. A supporter of NCWQ, she has been a sponsor of the Bursary Program for a number of years. This bursary is for a female student with a disability, to assist her study program after high school. The value of the bursary is $1,100.00
To apply for this bursary, the following criteria must have been addressed:
- A female student enrolled in post-secondary study

NCWQ is very pleased to award this bursary to Caitlin in 2018.
