David Littleproud Bursary supports Maranoa’s emerging female students
To help support rural women pursing further study, Member for Maranoa and Leader of the Nationals David Littleproud MP is once again offering a $1000 bursary through the National Council of Women in Queensland (NCWQ).
Mr Littleproud said the bursary had helped country students pursue educational pathways for the past seven years and had provided much-needed support for those needing to move away from regional areas to pursue further study.
“I understand how important it is for our next generation of young women to pursue further education and that’s why each year I sponsor a bursary through the NCWQ for a young woman living in the Maranoa electorate to pursue full-time study because it gives them the support they need to take their education to the next level. This is a great initiative by the NCWQ and I am proud to be involved again in 2023.” Mr Littleproud said.
The bursary is designed for a female, first year, full-time student undertaking a tertiary course, such as university, TAFE or the Conservatorium of Music.
To be eligible, applicants must be a Maranoa electorate constituent, although they may have relocated for their studies, and eligible applicants must also be an Australian citizen or Permanent Resident of Australia.
