Scholarship to help students experience Bundaberg

scholarship CQUniversity
New and prospective students who plan on studying with CQUniversity this year are encouraged to apply now for a Destination Australia scholarship, valued at $15,000 per year of study.

Prospective students who plan on studying at CQUniversity Bundaberg this year are now eligible to apply for a new Federal Government-funded Destination Australia scholarship, valued at $15,000 per year of study.

The scholarships are available to new full-time Australian students who are considering, or currently in their first year of a Diploma of Nursing, Bachelor of Aviation (Flight Operations), Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), Master of Engineering, Graduate Certificate in Research or PhD studies with CQUniversity.

CQUniversity Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Nick Klomp, said that students didn’t need to be from a regional area, they just needed to be planning on studying at a regional CQUniversity campus.

“Our regional campuses don’t only offer a great quality education, they also offer the companionship of close-knit communities, plus opportunities to explore iconic natural wonders, all with a lower cost of living,” Prof Klomp said.

“Bundaberg is a smaller regional city in the agricultural belt of Australia. It is one of the world's best places to study agribusiness and horticulture and we have world-leading experts running our courses.

“Just a few minutes away is Mon Repos beach, with the annual turtle hatching over the summer months, while from June to November the bay becomes a breeding ground for migrating humpback whales.

“The UNESCO World Heritage site Fraser Island is only a couple of hours away. You can also access the southern Great Barrier Reef, from Bundaberg, one of the healthiest sections of the reef.”

Across Australia, the Federal Government is offering 1180 Destination Australia scholarships worth $19.5 million, supporting students to study at a regional university or vocational education provider.

Scholarship applications close on Friday, 24 January.
