Vice-Chancellor’s Leadership Scholarship - India

Strengthening relations between India and Australia.

Over the years, the relations between India and Australia, especially those related to trade, security and international cooperation, have grown exponentially. Together we are strategic partners in the Indo-Pacific region and beyond.

Across our UOW campuses, we have a strong Indian diaspora who are significantly contributing to their University and community. Across Australia, the number of Indian born individuals is growing. 

The increasing cultural diversity has greatly benefited Australia and UOW. The University is keen to build upon this rich tradition.

With the Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Scholarship-India, we seek to inspire a new generation of young, promising, and passionate leaders from India. To give them the knowledge, skills, and worldviews to be the future leaders who would play a crucial role as India and Australia further develop their strategic partnership.
