Learn the ropes with the Shirley McKerrow Scholarship

Want to know what politics is like from the inside?

The Nationals are offering a week’s work experience with a Member of Parliament at either State or Federal level to one lucky lady looking to get a taste in politics. 

The Shirley McKerrow Scholarship is offered biannually on behalf of the Women’s Federal Council of the Nationals with the aim to support the education of women in the political process. The program is a wonderful opportunity for any female party member interested in learning what goes on behind the cameras and away from the fiery chambers during Question Time.

The scholarship’s receipt will gain a deeper understanding and learn firsthand what it being a Member of Parliament involves and what the National Party works to so hard to achieve away from the spotlight. 

The total scholarship is $3,000 payable on receipts of travel and accommodation and winner will be announced in May next year.

Applications close on the 27th March 2017 and should be addressed to:

Mrs Terry Ann Cranwell
Women’s Federal Council President of National Party of Australia
“Ellendale Station”
Einasleigh, Queensland, 4871
