The Gibb Group Property Scholarship provides encouragement and support for talented commencing UniSA property students. Recipients will receive a three-year scholarship valued at up to $15,000.
Recipients will benefit from work experience with the Gibb Group at any regional office (locations are Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Rockhampton or Townsville).
The work experience component is designed to provide the recipient with exposure to a dynamic Australian property developer and asset manager, specialising in industrial logistics property, suburban office and business park space.
The timing and duration of the work experience will be agreed between the Gibb Group and the recipient. It is generally expected that the duration will be for a minimum of five working days. The scholarship includes $1,500 to offset travel and accommodation expenses incurred by the recipient.
The work experience may form part of the Commerce Practicum elective available to final year students, subject to approval by the relevant Program Director or Course Coordinator. It is not a requirement that the recipient select the Commerce Practicum elective; it is merely an option available.
