*NEW JOAN BIELSKI SCHOLARSHIP – CLOSED FOR THIS YEAR
The AFGW NSW Education Trust invites applications for this scholarship from woman aged over 35, who have fulfilled the entrance requirements for a first course at university in NSW and can demonstrate hardship. Candidates must be Australian citizens or permanent residents.
Long time AFGW NSW member, Joan Bielski AO, was a leading Australian feminist who left school at fourteen and only after service in the WAAF was she able to attend university as a returned service woman. Her wish was to enable other women to get this second chance to attend university and she left a generous bequest to achieve this. Donations from her family and friends completed the funding.
An initial award of $10,000 in semester installments of $5000 will be given with a possibility of continuation for a second and third year, subject to satisfactory academic achievement.
The CLOSING DATE is MAY 31. No applications will be accepted after this date.
