Scholarship Program

Every year, we award scholarships to two university students in Australia or New Zealand to support their next year of study. 2017 scholarship application details will be available early in 2017.

Two scholarships are available: one for a female applicant, furthering our commitment to support women in building successful careers; and another that is open to everyone.

An application is not only an opportunity to compete for the scholarship but also to potentially secure a graduate position with the world's fastest-growing premium management consulting firm. This is the 13th year we have offered our prestigious scholarship. Previous recipients come from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds, and have gone on to pursue successful careers—including joining BCG and working for nonprofit organizations, government, and in the private sector.

Who Should Apply?

We encourage applications from students who demonstrate exceptional ability in four areas:

  • Academic performance. A student who graduated in the top 5% of his or her class
  • Leadership. A leader who thrives in a team environment
  • Critical thinking. Someone who loves to solve challenging problems
  • Communication. A great communicator, in person and in writing

Who Is Eligible?

There are some specific criteria to be eligible for the scholarship. You must be:

  • An Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident
  • A student at an Australian or New Zealand university who has completed at least one year of study and has at least one more year of study in 2018
  • Not in receipt of a scholarship from any other management consulting company
  • Note: If you are a student completing a master's degree (except an MBA) at the University of Melbourne or University of Western Australian, you are eligible for the Scholarship
