The $5,000 annual scholarship was established with the philanthropic support of Frank Seeley AM FAICD (DUniv ’18), Executive Chairman and Founder of Seeley International.
Since founding Seeley International in 1972, when he began manufacturing portable evaporative coolers in his garage, Mr Seeley has grown the business to now employ more than 500 people, to deliver innovative, world-class products - including the world’s first six-star ducted gas heating range.
Kieran says, “Because of the scholarship I was able to pay my bills without having to rely on a part-time job and therefore was able to completely focus on my studies throughout the year.”
As a result of this focus, Kieran gained High Distinctions in all ten of his second-year topics and has now been accepted into a Master of Engineering Science (Electrical and Electronic).
The scholarship support from Seeley International has strengthened both his study and career prospects, especially within the State’s key economic sectors, and following his studies Kieran says, “My ultimate goal would be working in space, defence and manufacturing sectors.”
