The bursary scheme consists of a grant valued at $10,000 to be used for professional development and training purposes only, of which:

  • $2,000 is to be applied to any CPD courses and/or training programs offered by ADAVB and
  • $8,000 is to be applied to any CPD and/or training programs offered by other providers.

Applications will be assessed and reviewed by the bursary panel, comprising of appointed senior representatives from ADAVB and BOQ Specialist.

The ADAVB BOQ Specialist CPD Practice Bursary will be presented to the selected applicant at an ADAVB Annual Award Ceremony in August 2019.
