Future of Energy Engineering Scholarships

Energy Queensland is committed to training the engineering workforce of the future to complement and grow our existing highly skilled workforce.

With more than 7,600 employees, we’re proud to be one of the largest employers of electrical engineers in Australia and to offer the Future of Energy Engineering Scholarships program.

We’re seeking passionate engineering students to help us shape the future of energy in Queensland and deliver real world transformation as we work towards an electric life in 2030 (PDF 4.7 mb).

To help us achieve our ambitious plans, we’ve launched Australia’s largest engineering scholarship program. Each year we will offer 100 scholarships valued at $20,000 per year of study, coupled with opportunities for paid vacation work and exciting graduate positions.

Our primary focus will be electrical engineering students, with a small number of other complementary engineering disciplines included.

If you’re studying engineering at a Queensland university, keen to kickstart your career, and have a passion for being part of the renewable energy transformation, check this page in early 2024 for information about the next round of scholarship applications.
