Title
Westpac Future Leaders Scholarship
Description

Launched in 2014 with $100million as a gift to future generations of Australia, Westpac Bicentennial Foundation will fund 100 scholarships every year, forever. The Westpac Future Leaders scholarship is one of five scholarship programs offered by Westpac Bicentennial Foundation.

Whether your focus is Asia, new technology or social change the scholarships will be offering financial assistance for postgraduate study for talented individuals at Australia's leading universities. Scholars will be exceptional people, chosen for their potential to make a difference to Australia's future in one of our three focus areas:

  • Technology and innovation
  • Strengthening Australia-Asia ties
  • Enabling positive social change.

Valued at up to $120,000 over 2-3 years, scholarships will be awarded annually for research or coursework studies at graduate level. The scholarship includes a nine month Leadership Development Program tailored for our scholars as well as membership of the Westpac 100 Scholars Network. Growing by 100 scholars a year across our five scholarship programs, this network will connect those with bold ideas to build a better future for all Australians.

UWA alumni leaders will be available to support you in completing applications and preparing for interviews. Contact Emer Bagge emer.bagge@uwa.edu.au for assistance.
