Western Sydney University
Our partnership with Western Sydney University goes hand in hand with our mission to share and grow with our community.
We are launching the Scenic World Scholarship Fund to help ambitious Blue Mountains residents from disadvantaged backgrounds to follow their dream of studying a bachelor’s degree in environmental science or tourism management.
The fund will open the doors to new opportunities for Blue Mountains locals, with whole-of-degree scholarships of $7,500 per year (up to $30,000 per student) awarded annually to four students over the following four years.
