Having benefited enormously from my opportunity to gain good international experience with my own E.S. Cornwall Memorial Scholarship 20 years ago, I will always be a keen supporter of the scholarship as a way of benefiting both:
- a young engineer, because of both professional and personal experiences they gain across a number of countries, and
- the Australian electricity supply industry, by virtue of the skills and insights they bring back.
The Scholarship Advisory Committee and the University of Queensland have called for applicants for the next round of the scholarship until Friday 31st July. Full details are provided on the scholarship website here.
For those who are interested, a briefing session will be held on Thursday 16th July 2015 at University of Queensland.
If you know of someone who would benefit from the experience & exposure – and bring back benefits to the Australian industry – please let them know.
