About this scholarship:

This scholarship was established in 2019 with support from the Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation. The scholarships are intended for academic high-achievers who desire to make a difference in the world. They are for students who are creative and intellectually curious with the critical skills to challenge the status quo and cross boundaries, and who value discussion, debate, and the opportunity to learn from others.

We are looking for students whose endeavours are driven by compassion, a desire to better the lives of all members of the community, and a strong code of ethics.
