What is the point of giving out this scholarship?
Many university students’ outlooks and future prospects have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Some students have had to postpone their graduations because of canceled internships or company layoffs/furloughs, while others have lost their employment and are unable to continue their studies at all given the economic slump.
This award is designed to ensure that the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators can cover costs such as tuition, counseling and mental health support, internet and other such expenses.
Undergraduate and graduate students who attend a recognized university or college in Australia or the United States are eligible for this grant. We don’t have any GPA requirements, and we don’t have any application forms. This is how we help people who wish to achieve their dreams via education.
