Supporting the next generation of leaders.
Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Scholarship
UOW traces its origins to a community fundraising campaign in the Illawarra more than half a century ago that provided the foundations for a technical-based institution to grow into the world-class university it is today.
So, it stands to reason that we've maintained a close connection with the community with whom we share the vision of a brighter future for the community.
With the Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Scholarship, we seek to inspire a new generation of young, local, passionate leaders, and give them the knowledge, skills, and worldviews to be future leaders. The Vice-Chancellor’s Leadership Scholarship is open to students who attend high school in the Wollongong, Sutherland, Shellharbour, Kiama, Shoalhaven, Eden-Monaro and Wingecarribee local government areas.
The UOW Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Scholarship will challenge recipients to develop leadership potential alongside a network of like-minded students striving to create positive change.
The scholarship will provide generous financial assistance, leadership training, dedicated academic support, community networking, and global mobility opportunities. Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Scholars will be selected based on their academic achievement and leadership potential.

- You are an Australian or New Zealand Citizen, or the holder of an Australian Permanent Resident or Permanent Humanitarian Visa.
