Students who plan to study technology-related courses at Murdoch University in 2019 can now apply to receive $5,000 per year towards their studies via the Westpac Young Technologists’ Scholarships.
The scholarships are open to students under the age of 26 who have a desire to change the world through exploring their passion for technology, and ultimately, who want to turn that passion into a rewarding career.
Murdoch is one of five Australian universities to partner with the Westpac Bicentennial Foundation which awards 35 scholarships across five Australian universities each year.
In 2019, seven Murdoch students will be selected for a Westpac Scholarship, with each receiving $5,000 annually for up to five years of their studies.
Each student will also benefit from internship and networking opportunities that will help them to develop their technology leadership potential.
Applications for the 2019 Westpac Young Technologists Scholarships at Murdoch University opened on 1 October and close on 25 November, 2018.
To qualify, students must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident; have completed the appropriate level of education to gain university entrance within the past two years; and be enrolled in an approved technology-related degree.
More information on the Westpac Young Technologists Scholarship, including selection criteria and how to apply, is available from the dedicated website.
