The Gold Coast Academy of Sport is excited to continue a relationship with the Queensland Carbine Club. From 2016 (apart from 2020 and 2021 which have been COVID affected), the Carbine Club has joined with the Academy to support a developing athlete in their pursuit of excellence in sport.
Called the “The Glynis Nunn” award, the scholarship is given to an athlete between the ages of 15 and 18 who is striving for success in their chosen sport. The athlete will receive a Bursary of $5000 over a 12 month period with the GCAS selecting and monitoring the process.
Unfortunately, due to COVID, the Carbine Club has had limited functions to raise money for this scholarship, but it is hoped that in 2022 the award will continue.
The Carbine Club of Queensland is proud to work with the Academy to help promote Junior sport in Queensland, in keeping with the ideals of The Carbine Club of Queensland. Glynis said, “I am very humbled and pleased to have my name associated with a program that would be helping promising junior athletes in Queensland.” it will be the Academy’s responsibility to select a most deserving athlete from applications received.
The athlete needs to demonstrate high standards of responsibility, resilience, courage, dedication, humility, dedication and social skills. It is hoped that the bursary will help the chosen athlete, who may have had to cope with significant life challenges in their training and competition. Only athletes who do not receive financial support from any other avenue should apply. Applications are available on the GCAS website or by clicking on the link below.
The board of the GCAS would like to thank the Carbine Club for their generous support of a promising athlete and look forward to the association in the future.
As soon as the link with the Club is regained and funds can support the scholarship, the application forms will again, be available.
We thank you for your patience and hope that COVID can be controlled in the hope that sport can go back to normality.
