Two scholarships will be on offer for 2010, valued at $10,000 per year for the duration of a student’s approved full-time engineering or science degree at CQUniversity.

In addition to financial assistance, the successful scholarship recipients will be invited to join the QRC Scholarship Program where they can attend industry conferences, networking and ambassadorial events; receive assistance in securing vacation work with a minerals or energy company; and have opportunities to network with QRC’s current scholarship students.

The scholarships are open to students who have completed year 12 or were in a gap year in 2009.

Applicants must have an Overall Position 5 or better and be full-time students entering their first year of a Bachelor of Engineering (electrical, mechanical, civil, mining) or a Bachelor of Environmental Science at CQUniversity in 2010.
