Condamine Alliance Natural Resource Management Bursary
In 2017, USQ will offer one Condamine Alliance Natural Resource Management Bursary.
Condamine Alliance was established in 2002 with the purpose of brokering with the community the development of an NRM plan and investment into that plan for natural resource management change in the Condamine catchment. Condamine Alliance is the designated body to invest significant government funding programs with its partners in the Condamine River catchment. Part of the role is to ensure the legacy of knowledge remains in the catchment and through the established partnership with USQ and the Bursary, this initiative is a desire to assist aspiring students to reach their full potential when seeking a career in resource management.
The bursary will have a maximum value of $2 500.
In addition, the recipient of the bursary may be offered paid employment for a period of eight weeks with Condamine Alliance and/or one of its many affiliated partners.
