Elements Living Bursary 2021

Elements Retirement Village is proud to announce that we are a sponsor of the National Council of Women of Queensland (NCWQ) Elements Living Bursary for the 11th consecutive year.

Since 2011, the NCWQ Elements Bursary has provided a female student financial support toward their educational studies in the areas of care and lifestyle within the Queensland senior’s / aged care sector.

This year however, to acknowledge the low male participation in the aged care sector, the NCW Elements Living Bursary will be made available to both male and female applicants.


What is the Elements Living Bursary?

The Elements bursary is one of over 30 bursaries awarded each year as part of the National Council of Women of Queensland’s (NCWQ) Bursary program.

Established in 1905, the National Council of Women of Queensland Inc. (NCWQ) continues to represent the voice of thousands of women through its affiliated organisations and individual membership.

The bursary program, since its commencement in 2009, indicates the strong commitment of NCWQ to equality of opportunity for all women, especially in offering assistance to Queensland female students as they pursue their chosen pathway of study

Chiou See Anderson, founder of Elements Retirement Living, is a long-term sponsor of the NCWQ bursary program and supporter of NCWQ. Chiou See is deeply committed to education within the aged care sector and has a true passion for improving the development of the aged care industry.
