University/Tertiary Scholarship & Career Development Program

ETHERIDGE SHIRE UNIVERSITY/TERTIARY SCHOLARSHIP & CAREER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

Applications for the 2021 University / Tertiary Scholarship are NOW OPEN.

Applications close: 4pm, Friday 18th December 2020.

Over the past four years, Council has awarded a tertiary scholarship of $5,000 for the 1st year of the successful applicant’s full-time studies towards a Bachelor degree or an approved Diploma Course in Planning & Environmental Health, Civil Engineering, Nursing, Early Childcare or Accounting (or another approved course). Council has targeted these particular courses as employees in these fields are in short supply throughout Local Government in Queensland, and it is hoped that Council’s Scholarship will assist in retaining qualified professionals in these fields, particularly in regional areas.

To be eligible for a Scholarship, the student needs to maintain their residency in the Etheridge Shire through their parents/guardian. The student, therefore, may be attending boarding school outside the Shire when they apply for a Scholarship.
