PANSW Scholarships

Is your child in Year 12 this year completing the Higher School Certificate (HSC)? Does your child intend to go on to some form of tertiary education?

Every year the Association awards scholarships to assist the dependent child of financial serving members to complete their selected course, whether it be at university, college of advanced education or a similar form of a tertiary institution.

The PANSW Scholarships carry an allowance of $500, are tenable for the duration of one fulltime undergraduate course (3–4 years), and they are awarded on the results of the HSC.

Each applicant must provide the following as part of their application:

  • A copy of the applicant’s results e.g. Record of School Achievement (RoSA)
  • A copy of their ATAR of 75.00 or greater
  • A copy of the applicant’s enrolment e.g. student record or unofficial transcript showing enrolment for 2020.

The Executive recently acknowledged that more flexibility was required in the scheme. It has since been amended to allow applicants to submit additional information if they don’t meet the benchmark, or their tertiary course doesn’t require an ATAR.

Applications for 2020 are now open. Applications received after 28 February 2020 will not be considered except for those in extenuating circumstances.

All applications will then be reviewed in April 2020 after which, the applicants will be advised of the outcome, payments to follow shortly after.

For those with an existing scholarship, a letter will be sent out to you in early 2020, outlining what is required from you for your next instalment.

The application form can be downloaded below and should be filled out and submitted to Police Association of NSW PO Box A1097, Sydney South NSW 1232  or  Email:
