Some of Australia’s best and brightest students have a little less to worry about heading into the their final year 12 exams, knowing their university place is guaranteed after securing one of Bond University’s most prestigious scholarships.
Bond’s flagship Scholarships – the Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships – have been awarded to eight outstanding year 12 students from around Australia.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Robert Stable said the recipients of the 2008 Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships will “have a leading edge when it comes to securing full-time employment upon graduation and forging high level careers in the corporate sphere.”
The full-tuition Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships are held in high esteem by high school students around the country and were fiercely contested this year, with hundreds of applications received.
Professor Stable said; “The recipients of these scholarships really are among the best and brightest in Australia”.
“They are not only outstanding in an academic sense, but they have also demonstrated exceptional personal talent and are heavily involved in co-curricular and community activities.”
“I am confident they will go on to become the business leaders and managers of Australia’s future,” Professor Stable said.
