Careering Options Scholarship

Applications are now open for the 2018 Careering Options Scholarship.

The Scholarship was established eight years ago to support the professional development of our contractors. It is designed to encourage and enable our contractors to refresh and develop their knowledge and skills.

Lucy Saunders and Debbie Gee were last year's scholarship recipients. 

An experienced principal policy analyst, Lucy was funded to attend a two-day course on using data. With data becoming more critical to government decision-making across a wide range of sectors, Lucy was keen to strengthen her skills in interpreting and using data to inform decisions.

Debbie is an experienced communications contractor specialising in stakeholder engagement and community participation. She attended courses to update her learning and qualifications in contemporary concepts and standards for stakeholder and community engagement. 

Applications for this year's scholarship close on Monday 8 October 2018.
