Set sail on your career with the Leeuwin Career Challenge Scholarship

Tuesday, 05 September 2017


Last year Master of Business Administration student Katherine Powell was the deserving winner of the Leeuwin Career Challenge scholarship. It was a fantastic opportunity to undertake a seven day voyage on board the STS Leeuwin II where Katherine was able to develop leadership skills as well as key employability skills.

This year we’re offering you the opportunity to follow in Katherine’s footsteps and take your place on the STS Leeuwin II. Join university students and young career professionals on the voyage, and you will get:

  • Hands-on sailing experience
  • A post voyage discussion by fully accredited Relationship Facilitator, Craig Van Waardenburg
  • Onboard meals, safety equipment and wet weather gear
  • Form a network with other young career professionals
  • Develop personal confidence
  • And sail into the Northern Gateway of Australia’s South West in this once in a lifetime opportunity!

The voyage will take place on the 8-14th December where you’ll have the chance to sail from Fremantle down to Bunbury.

Not only will you get to try your hand at sailing the ship, you’ll also learn to set the sails, climb the masts and stand watch while sailing through the night.

We have one scholarship up for grabs in 2017 valued at $2250!

To apply, respond to the questions below with your full name and student ID to MBA Director Dr Mehran Nejati by Monday 18th September.

  1. How has ECU MBA transformed your career/life?
  2. What do you hope to gain from such a unique opportunity?
  3. In your opinion, why should you be nominated for Leeuwin’s Career Challenge as the School’s representative?
