- 6 x $750.00 bursaries for NCMs (up to and including the rank of Master Warrant Officer / Chief Petty Officer – 2nd Class).
Furthermore, contribution to the P070 Branch Fund is not be a pre-requisite for this year’s competition. The remaining direction and guidance found within the Educational Bursary Instruction is unchanged. Please refer to it before submitting an application.
