As part of Bond University’s 30th Anniversary celebrations in 2019, we will be offering a number of part-fee scholarships to high achieving students from Japan, to commemorate the historic milestone in Japanese-Australian friendship and cooperation that occurred in 1989, when Bond Corporation in Australia and Electronics and Industrial Enterprise (EIE) of Japan realised their dream of creating Australia’s first private, not-for-profit university.

Our 30th Anniversary scholarships are available to students from Japan commencing either a Bachelor or Masters degree (or a package of programs including a Bachelor or Masters degree) at Bond University in 2019 or 2020.

Through our extensive scholarship program, Bond University aims to identify the leaders of the future and help them realise their full potential by providing access to an exceptional educational experience. Proudly supported by key industry partners and global philanthropists, our scholarships are available to students who have excelled academically, in community endeavours and in leadership roles.
