Presented annually to one vocational education graduate and one Bachelor degree or Associate degree graduate for academic performance and leadership.
The two RMIT Awards are presented annually, one to a vocational education graduate and one to a higher education Bachelor degree or Associate degree graduate. Only one graduate for each prize is nominated by each College in February. Candidates are assessed on their outstanding leadership potential and initiative, social and community contribution, and excellent academic record.
The value of the award is $3,000 and an offer of an RMIT scholarship to study a full-time program at a higher level than the one previously studied at RMIT.
If you have completed a first qualification in a Diploma or Advanced Diploma from the Vocational Education sector at RMIT or an undergraduate first degree qualification at RMIT, you may be eligible for this prize.
Contact your School or College about submitting a nomination for pre-selection by the end of your final year of undergraduate study.
Your nomination must be supported by a complete record of official academic results, highlighting major subjects, a signed statement of highlighting your leadership and initiative, and any additional supporting document, and a signed supporting statement from the school that nominates you.
The successful candidate is interviewed in March by a Selection Committee, comprising the Academic Registrar (or nominee), and one senior staff member from each College.
Higher Education Award candidates are assessed on their outstanding leadership potential and initiative (60%) and excellent academic record (40%) and an interview.
Vocational Education Award candidates are assessed on their outstanding leadership potential and initiative (60%) and social and community contribution both within and outside of RMIT (40%), excellent academic record and an interview.
