Gippsland Water Federation University Scholarship - now open

In partnership with Federation University, we offer scholarships to Gippsland-based students entering their first year study at Federation University’s Gippsland campus.

We have two scholarships available. The first is for Gippsland-based women entering their first year of engineering or science at Federation University's Gippsland Campus. The second is for Aboriginal students beginning an undergraduate degree in courses relevant to our business functions including business, science, engineering or information technology.

The scholarships provide $3000 per year for the first three years of their course, with the opportunity to gain hands-on industry experience working with us.

Our inaugural scholarship recipient Georgie Lambert grew up surrounded by the bush in Traralgon South.

She’s passionate about future generations experiencing the same enjoyment and benefits of our natural environment as she did. Georgie is studying a Bachelor of Environmental and Conservation Science. Georgie is a former student of Traralgon Secondary College.
