Greenwood-Tomkys Scholarship in Nursing

In 2021, USQ will offer three Greenwood-Tomkys Scholarships in Nursing, to support students commencing their studies in the Bachelor of Nursing.

The Greenwood-Tomkys Fund was established through the Estate of the late Betty Greenwood and in conjunction with her sister, the late Valery Tomkys. Betty and Valery together with their sister Lesley are the daughters of Jack and Mary Tomkys and were long term Toowoomba residents who also had farming interests at Murphy’s Creek. The fund was created in memory of the Tomkys family and Betty’s husband Jim.

The principal purpose of the fund is to provide scholarships, bursaries and other educational assistance for students of nursing and other allied health professions and disciplines.  Assistance is provided to students in financial need to undertake their studies.

Each scholarship will have a maximum value of $15 000 to be paid over three years.
