Brisbane Water NSW Legacy Club

As you may be aware, each year Brisbane Water (NSW) Legacy Club (BWL) offers scholarships to eligible individuals wishing to pursue studies at university, TAFE or approved private colleges.  The key eligibility criteria include being:

  • the direct descendant of a former member of the Australian Defence Force,
  • aged 25 years or under; and
  • a resident of the Central Coast LGA.

Significant Financial disadvantage is also a prerequisite.  Our scholarship fund can also be utilised to assist eligible financially disadvantaged Year 11 and 12 students to complete their high school studies.  Since 2001 BWL has awarded 57 scholarships across a range of study disciplines.  Scholarships for full-time tertiary study commence at $5000 per annum up to a maximum of $6000 per annum in Years 3 and 4.  Vocational training (VET) scholarships are up to $3000 depending on the course and pattern of attendance.

On behalf of Brisbane Water (NSW) Legacy Club I am pleased to announce that we are now accepting online applications for our BWL Scholarships.  I would be grateful if you could pass on information about our Scholarship program to your students wishing to pursue tertiary or vocational studies in 2023.  The most practical way to do this would be to provide the following link to your students by way of the school newsletter or Facebook page and/or other social media platforms:

BWL will also be promoting its Scholarship program through the Central Coast Careers Advisor Network, the Central Coast Secondary Schools Mentoring Network, TAFE/HVTC/Coast Community College and various social media platforms across the Central Coast.

Your assistance in ensuring information about our Scholarship Program reaches its intended audience will be very much appreciated.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.


Yours sincerely

Jenni Bourchier

Scholarship Chairman
