Deb Frecklington Launches Bursary for Nanango Electorate Year 12 School Leavers

Member for Nanango, Deb Frecklington has launched a brand new Nanango Electorate ‘Year 12 School Leavers’ Bursary to help support local students who are pursuing further study or qualifications after Year 12.

Mrs Frecklington said that for many school leavers, it is often necessary to travel, or move to major centres to access further education and the bursary is designed to help with those costs.

“It is always a major step for our Year 12 School Leavers who must travel away for university, TAFE or other training and I wanted to show my support through a special Year 12 School Leavers Bursary,” Mrs Frecklington said.

“The Bursary is worth $1000 and aims to provide financial assistance with the costs associated with moving to their place of learning, the purchase of books, IT, tools or other necessary requirements.

“This inaugural Bursary is now open to Year 12 students who live within the Nanango Electorate, with applications closing at the end of January 2020.

“Five applicants will be shortlisted and the successful recipient will be selected by through a panel interview in early February.

“This Bursary provides me with an opportunity to show my support for young people who are passionate about furthering their skills and education, and who may not otherwise be able to afford to live away from home,” Deb said.

If you would like to apply, please go to Deb’s website at and follow the links, or contact the Electorate office on 4190 7100 for Bursary guidelines.
