What happens next?
Scholarship assessment is based on academic performance and responses to the written questions. There are no interviews for this scholarship.
Round 1 scholarship offers will be made in January 2020 to applicants that have placed QUT as their first course preference. Not all first-round offers are accepted, for a variety of reasons. So if you don't receive an offer in the first round, you may still be eligible for an offer in the second round. Round 2 scholarship offers will be made after the acceptance due date for the first round has lapsed.
Only students who are successful in being offered a scholarship are notified.
Although you may have been successful in your scholarship application, this does not mean that you're automatically accepted into the Bachelor of Engineering. You must still be successful in your QTAC application.
To keep your scholarship, you must:
- be enrolled full time in an eligible Engineering degree for the duration your studies
- achieve a minimum course grade point average (GPA) of 4 each semester
- play a leadership role through active participation in the Women in Engineering program activities and events.
- defer your scholarship offer
- hold any other scholarship except an Equity Scholarship. If you have any questions about holding other scholarships, contact the Science and Engineering Faculty.
Terms and Conditions for the 2020 Women in Engineering Scholarship are currently under review and will be updated shortly.
