In 2017–18 Scope Global was selected to deliver the Australian Government’s $24 million Commonwealth Scholarships Program for South Australia, a four-year program that will extend until 2021.
This program provides opportunities for students aged 16 to 64 to undertake undergraduate, postgraduate and/or vocational education and training in skill shortage and priority industries in South Australia. Scope Global manages all aspects of the scholarship lifecycle.
806 scholarships were awarded this year to support increased employment in South Australia’s growth sectors.
In 2018–19, Scope Global will place approximately 100 scholars into industry internships. Placements are designed to align with each scholar’s program of study, improve employment outcomes for graduates in the program, and provide priority industries with resources in areas experiencing a skills shortage.
