The Inland Rail Scholarships
Application close: 05 Feb 2020,
Terms: Over 3 or 4 years
The Inland Rail Scholarships Program, established by the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC), aims to provide education opportunities for regional students considering studying at Charles Sturt University, La Trobe University and the University of Southern Queensland. The Scholarships Program is part of the Inland Rail Skills Academy, which is creating value for communities along the Inland Rail alignment by offering education and training programs which increase the number of skilled local residents. Inland Rail is a once-in-a-generation project that will enhance supply chains and complete the backbone of the national freight network by providing for a transit time of 24 hours or less for freight trains between Melbourne and Brisbane via regional Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. Inland Rail will transform the way we move freight around the country, connect regional Australia to markets more efficiently, drive substantial cost savings for producers and consumers, and deliver significant economic benefits.
