Better Australia Scholarship Program
We would like to congratulate Heidi-May Mcrenolyds from Sydney University for winning the 2015 program. The 2016 program is now open.
The Expert Editor awards one $1000 scholarship each year to a student in Australia intent on making the country a better place.
We created this scholarship because we want to provide an incentive to Australian students to change the country. Today’s students have the potential to transform Australia and we want to recognise those with big agendas and make a financial contribution to help them realise it.
Background to the scholarship
Young people have always been the perfect vehicles for change as they are restless, idealistic and often unsatisfied with the status quo. In 2015, however, students are better equipped to make change than any previous generation.
The world is shrinking thanks to globalisation, speed of light communication and the unprecedented access to knowledge via the Internet. Anyone with a smartphone, which would have been considered a supercomputer 40 years ago, can access the database of human knowledge that has accumulated on the Internet, connect with like-minded people around the globe and take selfies all at the same time. Technology, and the world’s digital connectedness, means that we can all be influential.
How to apply
To be awarded this scholarship, students must outline in around 200 words how they intend to change Australia. Please email your entry to email@example.com and include your name, university and contact details.
The Expert Editor will award $1000 to the winning student. This money should be used to facilitate their agenda, but whether that involves paying for current educational expenses, or something else entirely, is up to them.
Keep in mind that if Steve Jobs was awarded such a scholarship in his youth, he probably would have spent the money to attend a Buddhist retreat and on LSD, and we think he made a pretty fantastic contribution to the world.
