Applications are now open for Education Queensland’s “Bevan Costello Senior Bursary”, named in honour of the late Wakka Wakka Elder who died in 2021.

But eligible students will have to move fast, with applications closing on June 14.

The bursary will provide two Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people, aged from 15–24, with a one-off payment of $2500 to assist with study, community or employment-related expenses.

The bursary supports those who are beginning or continuing study at a university, TAFE or other training organisation, or participating in an alternative program or employment that will support them in their career aspirations.

The bursary is available in two categories: Student and Community/Employment.

Applicants must be of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent and live in Cherbourg or the South Burnett region.

Information about how to apply is available on the Education Queensland website
