Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Scholarship – South Western Sydney

Supporting the next generation of leaders from South Western Sydney.

UOW established our newest campus in Liverpool in 2017 to extend the educational offerings available to students within this region, allowing you to get a world-class education on your doorstep.

During this time, we have developed a close connection with the community with whom we share the vision of a bright future for the South Western Sydney region.  

With the Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Scholarship, we seek to inspire a new generation of local passionate leaders and give them the knowledge, skills, and world views to be the future leaders of the South Western Sydney region. 

Leadership takes many forms. This scholarship will challenge you to develop your leadership style and potential alongside a network of like-minded students striving to create positive change. This scholarship would suit students who are starting out in their careers or their tertiary studies. It will provide generous financial assistance, leadership training and development, dedicated academic support, community networking, and global mobility opportunities. The UOW Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Scholars will be selected based on academic achievement, commitment to the South Western Sydney region, and leadership potential.
