Mrs Frecklington said the $1,000 bursary was an important way she could support the region’s school leavers, as they make the next step in their education journey.

“It is always a major step for our Year 12 school leavers who must travel away for TAFE, university or other training and this bursary is one way I can help support them on their pathway to further study,” Mrs Frecklington said.

“The bursary aims to provide financial assistance with the costs associated with moving to their place of learning, tools, the purchase of books, IT or other necessary requirements.

Applications are due by January 22 2024, and are open to Year 12 students who live in the Nanango Electorate.

After the closing date, applicants will be shortlisted before the successful recipient is selected through a panel interview in early February.

“Over the past four years, the bursary has supported students undertaking study in the fields of teaching, optometry, IT and medicine and I look forward to supporting another young person on their career path,” Mrs Frecklington said.
