About the scholarship

Our Strategy& team understands that we'll only solve our clients' most challenging strategic problems if our working community offers and includes a diverse range of experience, talent and ideas. For this to happen, we believe that all of our people need to feel empowered and comfortable to bring their whole self to work. It's why we've created an inclusive and collaborative environment where everyone is encouraged to embrace their unique differences and harness them at work.

In 2019, we are again looking to hire and reward exceptional students who share our commitment to diversity and inclusion (D&I). If you're in your penultimate year of undergraduate or postgraduate studies (completing in 2020) and are interested in joining Strategy&, we welcome your application to our scholarship program. We're looking to engage with students from a range of academic disciplines, backgrounds and experience.

Successful applicants will receive a scholarship of up to $15,000 and secure a four-week internship with the Strategy& team, which can be undertaken at a time that best suits you and us in either Sydney, Melbourne or Canberra. Scholars will receive ongoing support and guidance from a senior mentor at Strategy& and over the course of the internship, you'll also gain the opportunity to take part in our D&I committee and help shape the firm's priorities. Following completion of the internship, Scholars may receive an offer for a full-time graduate position with the Strategy& team.

The scholarship will be paid as follows:

  • $7,500 on commencement of the internship; and
  • if you are offered and accept a full-time graduate position with the Strategy& team, $7,500 to be paid upon commencing the graduate position.
