Mr Withers and one of his daughters have connections to engineering and recognise the importance of engineering in societies’ advancement.
When Mr Withers studied at RMIT during the 1940s and practised skills in both his career and retirement, his daughter remained in the drawing office. Although the drawing office work provided an income, it left lost opportunity due to the lack of quality education.
In recognition of the contribution that women now (2023) make to the workforce, the funding provided will encourage and inspire women to obtain qualifications in STEM careers.
By funding living expenses and/or RMIT fees, the scholarship will enable recipients to concentrate on excelling in their chosen field, engineering.
The scholarship application process is highly competitive with a limited number of scholarships available. Unfortunately, not all eligible applicants will receive one.
Only successful candidates will be notified via email to their RMIT student account.
For information about other financial assistance available to RMIT students, please speak to one of our Student Welfare Advisors.
