Procurement Australia in 2015 celebrated thirty years of the company’s inception. To honour and benchmark this milestone and create a lasting legacy the Procurement Australia Scholarship was created to recognise and reward high achieving individuals by funding a scholarship to study, take a secondment, research or develop a paper that adds value and insights for their sector.
The Procurement Australia Scholarship will be known as the Paul James Everitt Procurement Australia Scholarship, named in memory of Paul Everitt a former staff member of Procurement Australia, and a passionate, driven procurement executive, who tragically lost his life in October 2015. Paul himself believed in training and study and was undertaking a three year procurement study course with CIPS at the time of his death. Procurement Australia has set aside the sum of $10,000 per year to award as a scholarship.
The scholarship can be used for the development of a paper, overseas study or secondment, by an individual, a group or even a team.

The award is open to any procurement individual or procurement team working in a Procurement Australia member organisation in the public and private sector.
You can choose categories for your application – such as social procurement, environmental procurement, category management, supply chain:
What you don’t have to do
We don’t expect a huge submission – we are interested in your idea and what outcomes the study will have, so it is important to note that the submission only requires an outline of the intended use of the $10,000 scholarship fund.
You (or your team) can choose a category of their choice and outline the methodology of study specifics and outcomes relevant to procurement.
Once you fill out the below form, we will be in touch with you within 48 hours to discuss next steps. Finalists will be formally notified and requested to prepare a presentation to the Procurement Australasia Scholarship panel outlining the planned study. Please note: The Procurement Australasia Scholarship is not intended for use to pay fees for a university or TAFE semester(s).
