The Boeing Scholarships are offered to students at RMIT University in support of Boeing International Higher Education Philosophical Guidelines that states that Boeing will partner with strategically selected colleges and universities to:

  • enhance the skills required for students' academic and professional success while improving access for underrepresented populations (includes but not limited to financial need, gender, rural and ethnic minorities) and targeting high academic achievers
  • promote interest in continuing higher education for students, faculty and Boeing employees in aerospace areas of interest
  • increase our knowledge of higher education institutions' intellectual and technical capabilities and their knowledge of our critical skill needs
  • leverage our academic partnerships to enhance Boeing's visibility/ presence in key geographic markets.

The intent of the Boeing Scholarship is specifically to give a large number of students the opportunity to apply for support. In addition, Boeing places an emphasis on supporting vocational education (advanced diplomas) and undergraduate (associate and bachelor degrees and postgraduate (masters)) students who are under-represented, in financial need and/or demonstrate high academic merit who have technical or business aptitude.

Quotes from past recipients:

"The scholarship changed my studies/life positively and enriched it. It increased my confidence just by being a recipient of the Boeing Scholarship. With the money I received from the scholarship, I didn't have to think twice on spending it on valuable experience and knowledge. As a result, I gained more technical knowledge from online short courses and attending information sessions / coding laboratory." - Bachelor of Applied Science (Aviation)/ Bachelor of Business (Management) student
