Scholarships & Prizes

Offering a scholarship or prize for undergraduate students will give you an opportunity to build relationships with the best of our graduating students.

Scholarships are generally awarded on academic merit, and can include a workplace element. As the sponsor, you will be recognised by the College and asked to participate in prize-giving ceremonies.

We can tailor a scholarship or prize to meet your requirements as a benefactor.

Glenn Dickins

ANU Graduate, BEng, MEng, PhD

"With the support of a scholarship from ANU I had the freedom to pursue a challenging and rewarding final year project while enjoying university life. To return the favour, I set up the Dickins Scholarship to support creativity, fun and good engineering. It has been great to meet and even work with some of the recipients and to know that the scholarship has made a difference."

Other ways to give

Internships & work placements

Internships and work placements for students in Australia and abroad benefit all concerned:

As the industry partner, you can help to shape the careers and aspirations of engineering and computing graduates, and can assess the abilities of students before recruitment rounds.

Students in the scheme broaden their horizons, enhance their technical and communication skills, make valuable contacts and gain substantial work experience in a professional environment.

Support for student projects

By providing support for student projects, you can contribute to the curriculum and help students to be more involved in solving real-world problems. Several local businesses and government departments currently work with our third and fourth year software engineering students to create software programs tailored to the particular needs of the organisations.

Sponsorship of events

Sponsoring career events, and national and international engineering and computer science competitions, provides valuable opportunities for industry partners to meet our graduating students and encourage the next generation to explore these exciting and prosperous professions. Examples are competitions to develop and build mechanised vehicles such as racing cars, solar cars and bikes, and autonomous planes.
