We are particularly interested in receiving applications from groups under-represented in computing or higher education. This includes, but is not limited to:
The scholarship consists of one payment of $1,250 which is payable at the start of the academic year. What you do with the money is up to you!
To apply simply use our contact form below and tell us which university you're studying at, what subject you're studying and why this scholarship will help you. We will then select successful candidates in August before the academic year starts, with preference given to those from under-represented communities.
