USQ invests in talent

There’s a $29 000 package for school leavers with alpha-ATARS who make University of Southern Queensland their first preference

The university’s Become Rewarded scholarships automatically go to school leavers with ATARS of 97, who apply and then enrol. Top-offer chancellor’s scholarships are, “valued up to” $29 000 and include “an optional study abroad package,” which may not have many takers just now.

And there are rewards for the not-quite as ATAR-endowed, a $20 000 scholarship for applicants with 88 and up academic rankings and $6000 for those who score 84.

“We want to give back to our community and for our high-achieving students to stay here in our local communities,” Vice Chancellor Geraldine Mackenzie says. Although, out of region applicants are also eligible.
