Another scholarship up for grabs

A YEAR since the first Dr Ellen Mary Kent Hughes Memorial Scholarship was first announced, another South Burnett woman has the chance to receive a scholarship.

The South Burnett Women organisation hosted an International Women's Day breakfast on Wednesday, raising money for the scholarship.

The $5000 scholarship is to assist a South Burnett woman in going to tertiary education.

Applications for the scholarship will open in July.

Further detail on how to apply will be available in the future.

Dr Ellen Mary Kent Hughes became Queensland's first female councillor when she was elected to Kingaroy Shire Council in 1923.

The next South Burnett Women event is a night at the gallery on Thursday April 20 from 6-7:30pm at the Kingaroy Art Gallery.

An event for professional and business women, creating a network for professional business women.

Tickets are available on Eventbrite for $22 and include drinks on arrival, canapés and a donation to Kingaroy Art Gallery.
