Candidates must be Australian citizens or permanent residents.

Long time GW-NSW member, Joan Bielski AO, was a leading Australian feminist who left school at fourteen and only after service in the WAAF was she able to attend university as a returned service woman. Her wish was to enable other women to get this ‘second chance’ to attend university and she left a generous bequest to achieve this. Donations from her family and friends and members of GW-NSW completed the funding.

An award of $5,000 twice per annum will be given, for up to three years subject to satisfactory academic achievement.
