A scholarship to reach the skies

Even before he arrived on-campus, Ethan’s university journey got off to a flying start.

The Tamborine Mountain State High School OP2 student and aspiring pilot was the recipient of a USQ Chancellor’s Scholarship, valued up to $29,000.

Launched in 2019, the new range of Become Rewarded scholarships offer automatic scholarships to school leavers who gained an OP 1-8 and put USQ first on QTAC.

‘Receiving the Chancellor’s Scholarship was an awesome surprise and a major factor as to why I chose USQ. It has helped cover some of the day-to-day costs of living away from home and allow me more time to find my feet at university.’

Ethan said the funding would help make it easier for him to settle in to campus life at USQ Springfield, where he is currently studying his Bachelor of Aviation.
