How FoodStorm is Supporting Computer Science Education with Swinburne University
October 8th, 2018
The CaterXpress scholarship, offered through Swinburne University, supports computer science students by making the financial aspect of their journey through university a little easier.
The CaterXpress Computer Science Scholarship
Swinburne is a world-ranking university, committed to quality research in the science and technology fields. The CaterXpress scholarship offers computer science students financial assistance, and is particularly geared towards assisting students who are from rural or isolated areas or who are experiencing financial hardship.
Since 2012, CaterXpress has provided Swinburne computer science or information and communications technology students with more than $40,000 in scholarships.
In 2018 CaterXpress awarded two $5,000 scholarships to students at Swinburne. One of the recipients was Matthew Aylward (pictured above). Matthew is from rural NSW, and says the scholarship has made a significant impact on his tertiary education so far.
What’s the scholarship, and what is it for?
Two $5,000 scholarships are awarded to two undergraduate students in their second year of a computer science or an information and communication technology course. The scholarship can be used to cover your costs of study.
Who’s eligible to apply?
The CaterXpress scholarship is offered to Australian citizens, permanent residents, or permanent humanitarian visas. Applicants should be enrolled in a full-time, on-campus undergraduate degree, and be in their second year of a computer science or information and communication technology course at Swinburne University. You need to demonstrate financial hardship, provide a personal statement, and provide character references.
