The purpose of the Scholarship is to motivate and support exceptional students who desire to undertake a program of study for a coursework degree at The University of Queensland. If you are a high-achieving student and you are completing Year 12 in 2019 (or you completed in 2018 and you’re on a gap year), you are allowed to apply. These scholarships are granted exclusively on academic achievement to candidates who achieve at the very top of the OP1 band (or a minimum ATAR of 99.90). Awards are generally made before the end of the year (subject to availability of senior results).
