MEF Victoria is making scholarship awards available during 2012 to engineers who are working within local government in Victoria.  Two tours each of three tour places are being offered and it is proposed that the recipients will participate in Victorian group focused tours.
Nominations are now being invited for these scholarships.

  • The first tour is to Europe on an itinerary of up to two weeks planned by the recipients and is to include the International Federation of Municipal Engineering World Congress in Helsinki, Finland from 4th to 10th June 2012.
  • The second tour is to the United States of America and Canada on an itinerary of up to three weeks planned by recipients and is to include the American Public Works Association Congress in Anaheim, California, from 26th to 29th August 2012.

Each selected recipient will receive a scholarship of $8,500.

MEF Victoria has formed the view that there are a number of important community issues including the planning and delivery of public works, environmental sustainability, asset management and project management, where the results of research overseas may significantly benefit the municipal engineering profession.  The Foundation would welcome applications that nominate a topic of study that addresses an issue of importance and has specific application to municipal engineers.  Tour recipients will be required to provide a report on their topic of study and research.

Closing Date : The closing date for applications for scholarships is Friday 27th January 2012 and are to be forwarded to the MEF Secretary by email to
