Scholarships change lives

The scholarship means a lot to me. Winning has expanded my network as I’ve met amazing and friendly people at Mainfreight International here in Brisbane during my site visit. It is also a great financial support during my time here at university, especially since I live on campus.

Mainfreight Scholarship recipient

Having this scholarship will give me the safety of not having to work five days a week, so I can concentrate on my studies. I said in my application that I really value the balance between work, study and keeping up a social life, so winning the financial assistance will go a big way towards achieving that.

Scholarships are available to new and continuing students

We offer a wide range of scholarships to suit students in undergraduate and postgraduate courses. You could be eligible for different scholarships based on your background, chosen study area, hardships you’ve experienced, or your achievements so far.

Financial support removes some of the financial pressure that comes with studying at uni and allows you to spend more time on your studies, which is a key indicator for student success.
