UQ Young Scholars Program
 
Congratulations to Kaitlyn Read and Matthew Furness who have successfully gained a position in the UQ Young Scholars Program. Both students had to submit a written application consisting of their year 11 academic report and a personal statement outlining their academic awards, leadership roles, community service based work and interest in future studies.
 
Both students will now attend a five day (four night) residential camp at UQ St Lucia campus from 30th November to 4th December. While at the camp they will gain insight into university life, hear from leading thinkers and engage in discussions and collaborative forums in group settings. A range of social, sporting and cultural activities will complement the academic program.
 
Information from the UQ YSP website states:
 
The University of Queensland's Young Scholars Program (YSP) provides high achieving secondary school students with an opportunity to discover, learn and engage with UQ's academic community and like-minded students from across Queensland and New South Wales. Designed to nurture and develop future leaders, the Program also presents students with a unique opportunity for academic extension and enrichment.
 
UQ Young Scholars are challenged to think critically about some of today's major global issues and throughout their participation, are exposed to a wide range of potential study areas and career opportunities.
 
'We are really excited at the opportunity of participating in the UQ YSP and are looking forward to the residential camp in December'.
