Supporting the LGBTIQ Community





















Do you identify with the LGBTIQ Community?

Would $1,100 help you with your studies?

Are you a female student, aged between 16-24 years, living in the Brisbane City Council area, enrolled in high school or tertiary studies, and identifying with the LGBTIQ community?

Able to demonstrate your work in empowering your communities?

An Australian citizen or Permanent Resident of Australia?

If you answered YES to these questions, you may be eligible to apply for my 2021 Councillor Vicki Howard Bursary valued at $1,100.

I started sponsoring the NCWQ bursary because I am committed to empowering locals so they can continue developing their skills and knowledge to help the community.

I stand for inclusion and a socially cohesive and connected city, where people show willing friendship and compassion – the bursary does just that.

Past recipients have been exemplary role models, empowering young women throughout Brisbane and I look forward to seeing the high calibre of applicants this year.

For full details of the bursaries on offer, check out the specific bursary criteria which range from a Year 12 student, to TAFE, bachelor degree, to PhD levels.
