Raymond West Scholarship


The Raymond West Scholarship program is open to emerging local government leaders, committed to advancing the profession of local government to build better communities.

Raymond West was was a municipal officer working in Victoria, when he first brought his local government colleagues together in 1936. Since that first meeting, the Local Government Professionals federation has grown to become the peak body representing the sector, with representation in every state and territory in Australia, and a national office working at the federal and international level.

These scholarships give two emerging local government leaders the chance to attend the National Congress & Business Expo, in honour of him.

Applications to the 2019 Raymond West Scholarships should be made through our Federation partner in the relevant state office.
