Applications now open - apply before 31 August 2017

Education has many benefits, but one of its main aims is to prepare our children and young people to become employable adults with skills that will benefit them and society.

We have redeveloped our education funding framework with the aim to raise the level of general education and training of all members, not just at a tertiary level, that will provide a path to increase employment opportunities, while also focusing on the jobs of the future.

You will note some of the scholarship awards have a preference towards S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects and Business Management related subjects as these are at the forefront of the future required skills and knowledge.
