Global Business Giants Pick the Cream of Bond's Crop

Global business heavyweights are looking to Bond University as the source of their future leaders and upper-level managers.

A cohort of Fortune 500 companies and major multi-nationals, including Rothschild, Goldman Sachs JBWere, Minter Ellison, the United Group, KPMG and the Australian Stock Exchange, have partnered with Bond to launch the University’s new $10 million Scholarship Program.

The innovative business-student ‘partnership’ will handpick outstanding Year 12 students from across Australia each year to be mentored by their nominated sponsor throughout their studies at Bond University on the Gold Coast.

"These corporations are looking for Australia’s best and brightest students whom they will groom from the outset for management careers," said Bond University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Robert Stable.

"Many of these organisations have an established relationship with the University, providing student internships and recruiting our top graduates each year, some of whom have already risen through the ranks to upper-level positions.

"The Corporate Scholarship Program takes this partnership to a new level by identifying the most promising Year 12 students, providing them with a part tuition scholarship and combining their studies with workplace management training programs under the guidance of their corporate ‘mentor’.

"As such, this program will open the doors to blue-chip careers, giving our most extraordinary young people the leading edge when it comes to forging their way to the top of the corporate ladder."

Whilst academic excellence is a key criteria for scholarship applicants, the Selection Committee is also looking for exceptional personal attributes demonstrated through leadership, extra curricular involvement and significant community contribution.

"This program is designed to identify and foster Australia’s leaders and managers of the future, so we are specifically looking for young people with strong communication skills, leadership qualities and the willingness to focus completely on their career and life ambitions," said Professor Stable.

The Corporate Scholarship Program is part of Bond University’s suite of scholarships offering part or full tuition support, including the prestigious Vice-Chancellor Scholarships, an Australia Day Scholarship, journalism cadetships and a Sporting Scholarship for elite sportsmen and women.
