We are super excited to announce the launch of the Positive Lending Solutions Entrepreneur Scholarship for this year. The scholarship is now live and if you know someone who meets the criteria and could do with a hand bringing a great idea to life we encourage you to help pass on the word.

Australia's Leading Entrepreneur Scholarship

At the core of our values is the desire to support innovation and business acumen in young people. Our scholarship is designed to help identify and provide recognition to young entrepreneurs, to this end we will be awarding $10,000 to the best entry as evaluated by our judging panel.

The scholarship is a very valuable programme to be involved with, where our budding entrepreneurs can go through the process of delivering a plan that helps make a great idea a reality.

We’re encouraging the applicants to be as creative as possible and submit a plan to support their entrepreneurial idea. Going through the process of delivering a clear and simple plan is something we understand well, we’re sure we will see really well considered applications.

The sky’s the limit and we’re hoping that we can not only see some great plans, but also some really effective pitches. As with any entrepreneurial effort we know it takes courage to take the next steps, we really want people to push themselves and explore using planning techniques and a variety of formats including; images, video, photo’s, products, designs and more.

The scholarship is open to the applicable Universities and students. Whether they are full time or part time and right across all faculties, as we know that great ideas can come from all areas, from the sciences to the arts.

We are proud to be working with our University partners across Australia to help support entrepreneurial education and can’t wait to start seeing the applications.
