2016 Optimising Scholarship for Distance Education
To help fix this imbalance between on-campus and off-campus learning, we have established a scholarship exclusively for students studying online in regional and remote areas. This scholarship is open to students studying a Marketing, Communications or IT-related tertiary course. For the winner, $2,000 will be awarded to cover travel and accommodation to your campus or nearest capital city over the course of one-year.
This scholarship will give the recipient the freedom to travel and attend:
Special workshops, lectures or conferences
Work experience opportunities
Job interviews and networking opportunities
If the recipient chooses to visit Melbourne, a one-week work experience placement at our Richmond office may also be available.
Who can apply?
- University and TAFE students
- Currently enrolled in a tertiary course in Marketing, Communications, IT or a related field
- Completing at least 50% of units online and off-campus
- Living outside of a major metropolitan area
How do I apply?
To apply, please send us either a 200-400 word written application, OR a 2-5 minute video explaining:
- Where you live
- What you're studying
- What you would use the scholarship for
- Where you want your career to take you
Video Application: To submit a video application, upload your video to YouTube and include a link to this page (https://www.optimising.com.au/scholarship) in the description so we can find it easily and contact us with a link to the video. Video recorded on your smartphone is fine, we're looking for passion and a clear need, not Hollywood-production quality.
Written Application: Written applications in a preferred PDF format.
