Application for Rosemary Richards Scholarship Extended

Women members are invited to apply for the 2015 Rosemary Richards Scholarship by Friday July 17.

Please note the extension of deadline for applications to Friday July 17. 

Rosemary Richards was a proud feminist, unionist and educator. This scholarship, now in its ninth year, is in recognition of the significant contribution that Rosemary made to the AEU as an organisation and to all its members, women in particular. Across the AEU, women’s employment rights and women’s union participation have been steadily advanced due to an active, committed and predominantly female membership, but challenges still remain.

The scholarship, valued at $10,000 per year, aims to provide the opportunity to a woman member to increase her skills and experience in the union’s work at a state/territory/national or international level by supporting the recipient’s proposal which may include (but is not limited to):

  • The establishment of a work-shadowing arrangement or a mentoring arrangement;
  • Research or study experiences;
  • Formal and/or informal training and development opportunities (e.g. attendance at an appropriate conference); or
  • The design and implementation of a discrete project.

Nominations are due by Friday 17th July. Download a nomination form.

Applications are due by Friday July 17, 2015. An AEU Federal Executive Selection Panel will consider applications and the successful candidate will be informed as soon after as possible.

To apply, please view the selection criteria and complete the nomination form. Nominations should be submitted to AEU ACT Women's Officer, Sue Amundsen:, PO Box 3042, Manuka ACT 2603.

Please call Sue on 6272 7900 if you have any questions or would like to discuss your nomination.
