ACS Foundation Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) Scholarships
These provide project based, real life work experience relevant to a student's academic studies and run over varying periods of up to 48 weeks. Scholarship winners are based full time with an organisation and gain industry relevant skills and experiences that enhance both their future studies and work choices after graduation.
These scholarships are generally for undergraduate students in their penultimate year of study.
The ACS Foundation has a range of such scholarships currently available in a number of different areas of business with our donor organisations, including ones that would require more technical skills, and others more focused on business skills, marketing and communications.
Please note that scholarship criteria are set by each donor organisation, and while applications are encouraged from international students, some scholarships may require Australian Citizenship, or Permanent Residency.
The Australian Computer Society Foundation has awarded student scholarships each year since 2001. Last year more than 150 scholarships were awarded. More than $8 million has been donated by leading firms to fund these scholarships and the scholarships provide work experience with these leading firms.
