James N Stevens Scholarship

Scholarship opportunity with Council in the Corporate Services Directorate

Maroondah City Council is again offering a scholarship in recognition of the many years of valuable service given to the local community by the former Deputy Town Clerk of the City of Croydon, the late Mr. James (Jim) Stevens.

The Scholarship is for one year only and is valued at $3,000. The successful appointee will be paid in accordance with Award provisions and commensurate with responsibilities to the value of the Scholarship.

The intent of the Scholarship is to provide for practical placement within Council’s Corporate Services Directorate at a mutually convenient time during 2015 – perhaps during a semester break.

This placement will hopefully assist with the recipient’s development and provide an insight into career opportunities in Local Government administration in the future.
