Is your child intending to enroll in to some form of tertiary education? 

Every year, Your Association awards scholarships to dependent children of financial serving members, providing $500 in assistance to complete their selected course, whether it be at university, college of advanced education or a similar form of a tertiary institution. 

Such scholarships are credible for the duration of one full-time undergraduate course (3-4 years) and they are awarded on the results of the HSC.

Each applicant must provide the following as part of their application: 

  • A copy of the applicant’s results e.g. Record of School Achievement (RoSA) 
  • A copy of their ATAR 
  • A copy of the applicant’s enrolment e.g. student record or unofficial transcript showing enrolment for 2024. 

Scholarships that have been submitted will then be awarded by the Association to any eligible applicant whose ATAR is of 75.00 or greater or rank of 26 or more under the International Baccalaureate.

Unfortunately, applications received after 28 February 2024 will not be considered except for those in extenuating circumstances. 

All applications will then be revised in April 2024 after which, the applicants will be advised of the outcome, with payments to follow shortly after.

For those with an existing scholarship, a letter will be sent out to you in early 2024, outlining what is required from you for your next installment.

Scholarships are for members children only so making an application will require you to login to the PANSW Portal. If you have not set up your login, click here for instructions.
