    • University of Sunshine Coast (USC).

    Priority will be given to students majoring in electrical / electronic engineering and have placed (or intend on placing) an emphasis on studying power engineering electives.

    We may also consider engineering students from other relevant disciplines including:

    • Mechatronics Engineering
    • Mechanical Engineering
    • Civil Engineering
    • Structural Engineering.

    Engineering students from these faculties with a passion for building a career in the electricity industry are encouraged to apply, provided criteria 1, 2, 3 & 4 above are met. Universities other than those listed above would be assessed on a case by case basis.

    Important additional considerations:

    • Dual / double degrees are eligible. Integrated Bachelor and Master's Degrees are also eligible. Postgraduate students are not eligible.
    • To continue to receive the scholarship you will need to maintain a minimum average GPA of a Credit (5) across the progression of the course of your university study.
    • It is a condition of receiving Energy Queensland’s Future of Energy Engineering Scholarship that you are not receiving another scholarship or bursary payment. If you have been granted another scholarship or bursary from another organisation and you wish to receive the Energy Queensland’s Future of Energy Engineering Scholarship, you would need to forfeit your current scholarship and provide corresponding evidence to Energy Queensland.
    • We embrace diversity and want our future workforce to be a healthy reflection of the communities in which we operate. Women and first nations students are encouraged to apply. We will be considering the diversity of applicants during our recruitment practices.
