New scholarship program for Indian students heading for Australia’s top young university


New Delhi: Indian high school students, who aim to study at the University of Technology in Sydney, are now eligible to apply for an exciting scholarship program. The new UTS:INSEARCH Aspire Scholarship Program will offer a total of AUD3.5 million (INR 16.8 crores) to 700 students from India and the Subcontinent over the next four years. Each scholarship, worth AUD5,000, will be awarded to meritorious students, to be used in their second semester at UTS:INSEARCH.

“We know that there are many students from India who are interested in the University of Technology Sydney’s innovative approach to learning. The university’s strong collaboration with employers and industry enhances the opportunities for interesting and rewarding careers,” said Belinda Howell, Chief Market Development Officer for UTS:INSEARCH.

“We are pleased to launch the Aspire Scholarship program to encourage students from India, by supporting their career aspirations and helping them prepare to achieve success at university and beyond.”

“According to UNESCO’s 2017 Global Flow of Tertiary-Level Students figures, Australia has become the second most preferred destination for Indian students studying abroad, surpassing the UK,” said Ms Howell. The latest end-of-year international student enrolment data (2016) shows that more than 78,000 students from India are enrolled in education in Australia, representing 11% of all international student enrolments.

Anil Gulati, a civil engineering student at the University of Technology Sydney from Panchkula, Haryana, shares his experience. “UTS:INSEARCH provided me with the opportunity to build a great foundation for my future study in the field of civil engineering,” said Mr Gulati.

“I always thought of Australia as a great place to study engineering because of its rapid development. I chose the UTS Faculty of Engineering and IT for its amazing facilities, equipment and laboratories,” he said.

Mr Gulati completed his Diploma of Engineering at UTS:INSEARCH in 2016, and is now pursuing his Bachelor in Engineering degree at the University of Technology Sydney.
