College Scholars Program

The College Scholars Program recognises high-achieving students in our undergraduate programs and incorporates a series of opportunities designed to support career development and professional leadership capacity.

The program provides scholars with networking and leadership opportunities, as well as personal and professional development.

To be admitted to the program students are required to:

  • Have completed at least one year of study in a nominated College of Health, Medicine and Wellbeing degree
  • demonstrated high academic success in your studies by achieving a GPA for the previous year of 6.5 (or equivalent in the case of the Joint Medical Program)
  • are currently enrolled in a minimum of 20 units
  • Be listed on the College Commendation list (for the prior year).

Our aim is to prepare our scholars to be global citizens, leaders and change makers by providing opportunities for what the Lancet Commission term “transformative learning”.
