Payce North Queensland Sports Encouragement Bursaries

PAYCE continue to acknowledge and assist the sporting youth of North Queensland. Each year up to 30 PAYCE North Queensland Sports Encouragement Bursaries are distributed throughout North Queensland to junior sportsmen and women.



Contact your local Council for details on how to apply and for Council application cut-off dates.

All nominations must be received

at the North Queensland Sports Foundation Office by close of business Friday 21st July 2017.

Links to Council websites can be found on Our Board page.

Application Guidelines:

  • Each Member Council can nominate up to 2 (two) junior athletes (must be under 18 years of age on 31st December 2017).

  • Each Council may have a different  closing date for nominations - make sure you check when they close!  (Nominations must be received in the NQSF office from Councils by Friday 21st July 2017 so Council closing dates will generally be AT LEAST one week prior to this, allowing them enough time to finalize and forward nominations).

  • Nominations received in the NQSF office direct from candidates will be forwarded on to relevant Councils for their individual consideration processes.  We therefore cannot guarantee that nominations will ultimately be received in time by the relevant council.

  • Councils will be notified of successful recipients by approx 10th August 2017.


Nominations are processed through applying to your local council sports and recreation officer, with nominations then forwarded onto the North Queensland Sports Foundation for consideration.
