University of Queensland Young Scholars program

Two Year 11 students have been accepted into the University of Queensland 2018-2019 Young Scholars program.

Designed to nurture and develop future leaders, the program presents students with an opportunity for academic extension and enrichment and is centred around igniting young change-makers’ passions for leadership, academic achievement and community development in today’s global society.

Congratulations to Arlou van der Westhuizen and Lachlan MacMillan who will participate in a five-day residential camp at the St Lucia campus. This on-campus experience challenges young scholars to think critically about some of today’s major global issues and exposes them to a wide range of potential study areas and career opportunities as they hear from leading thinkers and participate in collaborative forums.

Selection is based on academic excellence, leadership achievements and/or significant contribution to their school or community.

Congratulations to Arlou and Lachlan on being selected as UQ Young Scholars.
