Apply now for GPC’s Talent Today – Talent Tomorrow Bursary

Applications for GPC’s Talent Today – Talent Tomorrow Bursary Program for Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Australian South Sea Islander secondary school students are now open.

Now in its third year, the bursary program aims to help facilitate increased opportunities for our local Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Australian South Sea Islander youth by recognising and rewarding secondary students’ efforts at school, and to encourage them to continue their education journey.

The bursary is awarded annually for up to one Year 8 ($500) and one Year 10 ($750) Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Australian South Sea Islander student from each secondary school in the Gladstone region.

Nominations will be assessed against the students’ commitment to their schooling in areas including attitude, attendance, academic commitment and connection to culture.

Successful recipients will be able to utilise the bursary to assist with the purchase of school uniforms, text book hire, curriculum based excursions, laptop hire, booklist items and work experience fees.
