the Global Leaders Scholarship
EXTENDING YOUR NETWORK
The Gail Kelly Global Leaders Scholarship will support Dr Kelly’s legacy by creating a scholarship program in perpetuity which will provide the opportunity for Australian and South African students to embark on a transformative exchange program. Through the study of business and exploration of a foreign economy and culture, students will broaden their horizons and hone their skills to become exceptional global leaders.
Two (2) travel scholarships will be offered each year: one for an undergraduate student from the UNSW Business School to undertake a minimum of one (1) semester of study at the Faculty of Commerce, University of Cape Town, South Africa; and one for an undergraduate student from the Faculty of Commerce, University of Cape Town to undertake a minimum of one (1) semester of study at the UNSW Business School.
"In my time as Westpac CEO, I saw the importance of Executives having a world view, and Executives developing outstanding leadership capabilities. Through this new Scholarship, I’m hoping to provide an opportunity for students to develop in both of these areas"
