Arrow Energy USQ Indigenous Student Bursary in Education

In 2013, USQ will offer two Arrow Energy USQ Indigenous Student Bursaries in Education, to students entering into Year 12.

Arrow Energy is one of the largest integrated energy companies in Australia with five gas producing projects in the Surat and Bowen Basins, ownership of one gas-fired power station and interests in two others. Arrow provides approximately 20 per cent of Queensland’s gas supply, most of which is used to generate electricity. Arrow is undertaking Coal Seam Gas (CSG) exploration activities across Queensland, and, as the international demand for cleaner energy increases, is developing a CSG to Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project in Gladstone.

Arrow is committed to ensuring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities benefit from our presence. One of the ways Arrow seeks to achieve this is by supporting the education of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through high school bursaries and tertiary students with scholarships.

Value

Each bursary will have a maximum value of $1,000.

In addition, successful recipients will automatically be considered for an Arrow Energy Scholarship to the value of $20,000 to complete an Education degree at USQ when they complete year 12.
