Window still open for QUT scholarship
WITH the end of the school year fast approaching, many Ipswich Year 12 students are preparing for university study next year.
It's not too late for students to apply for some scholarships, such as the Queensland University of Technology's (QUT) 2013 Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships.
High-achieving students are encouraged to apply for the Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships before applications close at 5pm this Friday.
QUT will award more than 100 of the prizes for 2013, which are worth up to $25,000 over four years.
The Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships are based on academic results and are announced after OP scores are released in December.
Ipswich Grammar School 2011 graduate Michael Payne was among the QUT scholarship recipients for 2012. He is now finishing his first year of study towards a double degree in business and law at QUT's Gardens Point campus.
Michael will also enjoy other benefits of the prize, including access to industry mentors and a full-time scholarships co-ordinator.
