Your Association is proud to recommend and support the Gwen Martin Scholarship (GMS), in honour of Gwen Martin, a retired Detective Inspector, who was the first female elected to the Executive of the Police Association of New South Wales in 1979.

The purpose of this scholarship, is to allow female Executive Members, Branch Officials, Delegates to Conference or activists, the opportunity to complete an approved course, “Balance - Women Leaders in Public Safety” through the Australian Institute of Police Management (AIPM) in Manly.

This course comprises of two residential periods – 12 – 15 February 2019 and 8 – 10 May 2019, linked by 11 weeks of workplace development support (distance education). Applicants will need to be available on these dates to attend.

The successful candidates will be expected to be an ambassador of the PANSW, to extend and grow our business as determined by the strategic direction and our mission statement, which is endorsed by the Executive. This may include, but not limited to, speaking at the PANSW Women's Forum, attending some Branch Focus Courses/Forums and attending at least one Executive meeting during the 12 month scholarship.
