Scholarships

The Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre (BCEC) offers two different scholarships to prospective Curtin University students: the BCEC PhD Scholarship and the BCEC Economics and Social Policy Scholarship.

BCEC PhD Scholarship

Each year, the Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre offers a number of PhD scholarships to research students focused on economic policy forecasting and evaluation, regional economic policy, trade and industrial economics, labour, workforce and productivity, population growth and dynamics, income, wealth and housing and health, wellbeing and disadvantage.

BCEC Economics and Social Policy Scholarship

The Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre is introducing a new BCEC Economics and Social Policy Scholarship to support broadening access to tertiary education for those traditionally underrepresented at university.

A $10,000 per annum scholarship will be awarded to eligible applicants over the course of the scholar’s studies at Curtin University, for a maximum of three years.

The scholarship will be awarded to an undergraduate or postgraduate coursework student undertaking studies in the area/s of economics or social policy. The scholarship reflects Bankwest’s commitment to community development and the Centre’s aim to improve the lives of West Australians.

The new scholarship will be supported through BCEC event registration fees. We hope you will join us in supporting this initiative, and look forward to the first scholarship commencing in Semester 1, 2018.
