Kris Cruden Scholarship

Applications are now open for the inaugural Kris Cruden Scholarship.

The PSA CPSU NSW has established the Kris Cruden Scholarship in recognition of the legacy of Kris Cruden, who was an Industrial Manager at the union and a mentor to many in the movement. Kris achieved so much in her career as a trade unionist, in the Labor Party and as Mayor of Leichhardt, after completing her tertiary studies as a mature-aged student who continued employment as she completed university.

The Scholarship is for women aged 35 years and over who have been in the workforce and are commencing tertiary study.

The Scholarship is restricted to women members of the PSA CPSU NSW who, at the time of application, have been continuous financial members for the previous five years.

The Scholarship has a value of $2000 per annum and will be awarded initially for one year and, subject to a satisfactory report on progress and conduct, awarded each year for a maximum of three years.

The Scholarship will be awarded to a female member selected by the Executive based on factors including, socio-economic circumstances, academic potential, personal motivation, commitment to union values and commitment to studies.

Applications close on 29 February 2024.
