Help for scholars

UP to $40,000 in scholarships is up for grabs at CQUniversity to help tackle resource skills shortages.

Two scholarships for full-engineering or science valued at $10,000 a year for the student's entire degree are an offer for 2010.

The scholarship aims to support future engineers and environmental scientists, and is being run in conjunction with the Queensland Resources Council (QRC).

As well as the scholarships, the students will also be invited to join the QRC Scholarship Program, which gives the recipients opportunities to attend industry conferences, networking and ambassadorial events.

CQUniversity vice-chancellor and president Scott Bowman said he hoped partnering with QRC could provide additional support to students.

“By working together with the community, industry and business organisations we can help our students be what they want to be,” he said.

The scholarships are open to students who have completed Year 12 or were in a gap year in 2009.
