We believe an important way to advance Australia over the next century is to invest in the next generation of leaders: the gifted visionaries, the bold reformers and ambitious innovators.
The Westpac Scholarship Program will help achieve this by funding 100 scholarships and fellowships every year, forever. These scholarships are centred on the following three focus areas we believe are at the heart of Australia’s future growth and prosperity:
- Technology, innovation and the digitisation of everyday life
- Strengthening the bond between Australia and Asia
- Positive social change through social entrepreneurship
