Optimising : Scholarship for Distance Education

Opening Date: 08-03-2016   Closing Date: 31-10-2016  

The ‘Optimising Scholarship for Distance Education' is designed to help students who are living in rural and remote areas, studying a tertiary course off-campus.  
To help fix this imbalance between on-campus and off-campus learning, we have established a scholarship exclusively for students studying online in regional and remote areas. 
This scholarship will give the recipient the freedom to travel and attend:
  • Exams
  • Special workshops, lectures or conferences
  • Work experience opportunities
  • Job interviews and networking opportunities
If the recipient chooses to visit Melbourne, a one-week work experience placement at our Richmond office may also be available
For the winner, $2,000 will be awarded to cover travel and accommodation to your campus or nearest capital city over the course of one-year.
The Optimising Scholarship for Distance Education is open to students studying a Marketing, Communications or IT-related tertiary course at an Australian institution.
To apply, please send us either a 200-400 word written application, OR a 2-5 minute video explaining:
  • Where you live
  • What you're studying
  • What you would use the scholarship for
  • Where you want your career to take you
2016 Scholarship winner Winner will be selected via internal panel based on candidate's responses to application criteria.
