Leadership Scholarship

The scholarship engineering tomorrow’s leaders
Our Leadership Scholarship is one of the most valuable undergraduate scholarships in Australia, offering generous financial support and extensive leadership development.

The aim of our Leadership Scholarship is to shape you into a future leader by fostering your passion and motivation, as well as providing you with the hands-on experience and technical skills highly valued by industry, community and society.

We also prepare you to be an excellent communicator, with the confidence to work effectively within teams and with clients.

Unique to this program are the exciting range of opportunities available for you to pursue your leadership development abroad, that may include:

  • attending an Engineering Leadership Development Program at Pennsylvania State University (USA)
  • networking with other likeminded future leaders at the annual United Nations Youth Assembly

It's this well-rounded experience that will help you develop the skills and knowledge to make a significant contribution to your community and the world.

You'll be offered a structured professional experience program with some of Australia's leading firms, giving you the opportunity to build your skills and networks for up to 20 weeks during your degree.

To be eligible to apply, you need to be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

To be successful, you will need to demonstrate strong interpersonal and communication skills, leadership qualities, creativity, innovation, and self‑motivation in your application.

A high ATAR is required, although this scholarship is not based entirely on academic results. If you are expecting an ATAR of 98 or above in the NSW HSC (or equivalent), you should consider applying.
