School of
Information Technology and Electrical Engineering

In view of a growing shortage of ICT graduates, The University of Queensland and its industry partners are continuing an initiative begun in 2007 to encourage and enable school-leavers to join UQ programs leading to careers in the ICT industry.


ICT Excellence Scholarships, to the value of $3,000 each, are awarded to students based on their year 12 results or overseas equivalent. To be eligible to apply for an ICT Excellence Scholarship you must be applying for a place in one of the following degrees:

  • Bachelor of Information Technology
  • Bachelor of Engineering (Software or Electrical & Computer Engineering)

If you are applying for a dual-degree which includes one of these degrees, you can still apply for an ICT Excellence Scholarship.

Scholarships will be awarded based on OP score or equivalent. In 2013, scholarships were awarded to applicants with an OP2 or better.
