The Westpac Young Technologists Scholarship brings QUT students like Niamh Conway plenty of opportunities—in Niamh’s case, it took her all the way to a leadership residential in China.
While applying to study a double degree in the Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Information Technology, Niamh was awarded a scholarship through the Westpac Scholars Trust.
The scholarship grants university students up to $5000 per year over three years, as well as providing internships and networking opportunities, to develop bright young Australians into stronger technology leaders that seek to positively impact the future.
Immersing herself in the week-long leadership program in Shanghai, Niamh expanded her network to include inspiring entrepreneurs and business experts, giving her insight into the future of Australia and the Asia Pacific.
She has credited the program for giving her the opportunity to not only develop professionally, but to also have fun and make lifelong friends. “It was such an incredible week, and I cannot wait to learn more”.
Apply now to become a Westpac Young Technologist Scholar. Applications close 15 November 2019.
