The Academy Community Leadership Scholarship

The Academy Community Leadership Scholarship aims to recognise current students who are selected to provide support for the formal academic activities of The Academy as well as contribute to the informal aspects of the program. Our Scholars are expected to display leadership and life skills as well as make a contribution to the spirit and life of The Academy and the broader University community through the organisation of academic, social, cultural and sporting activities. Appropriate training and support will be provided to assist students in tailoring their contribution to the specific needs of The Academy community.
