Scholarships deadline closing in

If you’re keen to keep advancing in your broking career in 2015, there’s still plenty of time to get in your application for our annual NIBA College Scholarships.

Applications are open until 1 May and we have a number of scholarships up for grabs – all of which are aimed at providing brokers at different career stages with further opportunities to extend their knowledge and technical skills.

The Frank Earl Memorial Scholarship, sponsored by Macquarie Pacific Funding, offers QPIBs the chance to undertake NIBA College’s Graduate or Advanced Diploma of Insurance Broking.

In addition, there are two Professional Excellence Scholarships, courtesy of sponsor CGU, to allow less experienced brokers to complete their Diploma of Insurance Broking studies.

The application process is straightforward. Brokers can complete online application forms, outlining briefly how they feel the scholarships will benefit them professionally. In addition, two letters of recommendation from current or former employers are required in support of your application.

Full eligibility and application information for the scholarships – plus forms – can be found online at

If you have any queries at all about the scholarships, please contact Student Support Officer Hannah Mantle on (02) 9459 4317 or email
