Bond University has this year offered tuition assistance to more than 300 remarkable students nationwide as part of its extensive scholarship program.
Bond University Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Garry Marchant said, “Both the number and quality of scholarship applications we receive is growing exponentially year-on-year, which is a reflection of Bond’s strong reputation nationally for providing quality, personalised education.
“Students from every corner of Australia are being attracted by our five-star student experience and graduate outcomes, which are second-to-none,” he said.
Professor Marchant said the record investment by the private, not-for-profit university aims to attract the nation's best and brightest Year 12 students.
“Our part and full-tuition scholarships will provide the opportunity for Australia’s best and brightest students to fulfil their potential and go on to establish exceptional careers.
“As scholars, these students will play an active role in both academic and social activities on campus, where they will act as leaders for our international student body.
“They will also be given the opportunity to meet and network with business leaders from blue-chip organisations, some of whom have had direct involvement in the scholarship selection process to help us identify the very best up-and-coming talent.
“We are incredibly excited to be welcoming such an extraordinary, promising group of students to the Bond community. I am positive they will go on to establish exceptional careers in their chosen fields and do themselves, their families and Bond University proud,” he said.
Professor Marchant added that the support of benefactors and the business community had helped the University to boost its scholarship offerings this year.
“Our unwavering commitment to building and maintaining meaningful relationships with the community and leading corporate organisations has led to the introduction of scholarships that offer an enriched learning experience to students and often deliver exceptional graduate opportunities.
“We are also proud to be working closer than ever with our Indigenous community, having introduced a number of new scholarships this year, including the Bond University Award for Indigenous Community Excellence , to help, along with other Australian universities, to further Indigenous education in this country.”
