Instrumental to my university experience
"I was incredibly fortunate to be awarded a QUT Excellence Scholarship (Academic). This scholarship has been instrumental to my university experience. Through the College of Excellence I have made amazing friends with fellow recipients, giving me a strong sense of community. There have also been many opportunities to get involved in uni life such as running workshops on different topics and volunteering at events. I highly recommend looking into all the different scholarships—there are so many on offer."
Focus on your studies
"I wanted to capitalise on the opportunity to attend university as my parents never had that experience. I used the Educational Access Scheme to help me get into my course. The Equity Scholarships Scheme also helped alleviate stresses I had about paying my bills on time and allowed me to focus on my studies."
"The Tertiary Access Payment I received to help me relocate to Brisbane was an amazing support especially during the first couple of months while I looked for a part-time job. I also received an Equity Scholarship which took the burden off my back for the second half of the year. It allowed me to focus on my studies without as much pressure to work to cover living expenses."
Helps with everything
"I am a recipient of the QAS Jamie Jackway Paramedic Scholarship. It helps with everything—my course fees, travel and accommodation for placement, and my uniforms. If you get accepted into uni, I recommend you apply for any scholarships that you are eligible for."
Fast track your career
"As a QUT Corporate Partners in Excellence Scholarship recipient, I benefitted from the internships this program delivers. This scholarship allowed me to fast track my career, as my internships allowed me to explore potential career paths, develop my professional skills and increase my professional network."
