In 2001, our union introduced a bursary scheme for senior high school students.
Known as the Patricia Cousar Memorial Bursary, eligibility is open to dependents of financial Together members who are entering years 11 and 12 or equivalent.
The bursary is used to finance the costs of education for these students. The bursary is a small reflection of the principle union members believe - that membership is not only about your rights at work.
All members who have eligible student dependents are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
Altogether 22 bursaries are awarded to students from all regions of Queensland. The winners from each region are drawn randomly and each winner receives a $300 bursary.
Nominations close at 12 noon Friday 23 February 2018.
