You must:

How to apply

Step 1 - prepare your application

Selection will be based on:

  • an essay of 800-1,000 words, or a five minute video, on one of these topics:
    • how can high schools, and organisations like NAWIC, play a bigger part in encouraging girls to consider a career in the construction industry?
    • the theme for the NAWIC Mentoring program for FY20 is Balance -- in this context, that could mean balancing your mind, thinking and university studies. Tell us what these concepts mean to you in a professional and personal context, and how you would embody them as a representative of the NAWIC organisation/successful scholarship applicant?
  • a brief explanation of how the NAWIC scholarship will assist you in your plan of study (e.g., assistance with purchasing text books).
  • contact details from either your employer or supervising lecturer.

The recipient's essay will be published in one or more NAWIC QLD publications, like the NAWIC website, Facebook page and Linkedin page.

You can supply academic transcripts obtained from HiQ. You don't need to submit an official academic record of QUT studies.

Step 2 - submit your application

Visit the NAWIC Queensland Scholarships page and submit your application by Monday 20 April 2020 at 5:00pm.


You must maintain a grade point average (GPA) of 5 or above and continue to meet all other eligibility requirements to receive the second installment of your scholarship.

Failure to comply may result in your scholarship being terminated at the discretion of the NAWIC committee.
