MI-SCHOLARSHIP
PROGRAM

 

A MIGAS Scholarship are designed specifically for apprentices, to
acknowledge those that are going above and beyond, and also recognise
those who’ve overcome obstacles to gaining employment in trades by
demonstrating resilience and grit through their everyday works

THE PROGRAM

The scholarship program is open nationally to all MIGAS apprentices and trainees and aims to recognise the achievements of those who exhibit extraordinary promise through an annual scholarship fund. Each scholarship offers a combination of a cash reward and financial support for professional development. The scholarships are awarded to MIGAS Apprentices and Trainees across six categories to high achievers who have also faced personal adversity and challenges to completing their trade training.
