Scholarships and AwardsThe Police Association offers several scholarships and development opportunities each year to eligible members and to school-age children of members.
Scholarships & Projects for Members
These scholarships provide members with the opportunity to increase their knowledge of workplace relations and industrial relations via the Employment Relations Professional Development Program. The program has been developed specifically for members of the Association by research experts at the University of Melbourne's Faculty of Business and Economics.
The Pat Hunter Memorial program replaces the Anna Stewart Memorial Project which, until recently, served a similar purpose. The newly-developed nine day program, run and funded by The Police Association, gives female members the opportunity to see how the Association operates on a day-to-day basis.
Scholarships for Children of a School Age
There are two scholarships, each valued at $350, awarded to current year 8 students. The scholarships are awarded for one year.
This scholarship, valued at $900, is awarded to a child completing year 9. The scholarship is for a period of three years at an allowance of $300 per year.
