Have you applied for your OzTREKK scholarship?
What kind of student are you?
We know that the “OzTREKK student” is not a “regular student.” OzTREKK students are intelligent, tenacious, and courageous. They tend to think outside the box, and ask What if?
What if I studied in another country… on the other side of the globe?
What if I studied at one of the top universities in the world?
What if I could make a difference in others’ lives?
What if I could change my life because I chose to study in Australia?
The OzTREKK Community Leaders Scholarships were created to assist students who have demonstrated leadership, compassion, and innovation in their communities. We feel it is important to support Canada’s future professionals!
