University of Western Australia – INPEX Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Scholarships

INPEX scholarships encourage and assist high achieving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to commence an undergraduate degree course at The University of Western Australia.

Supporting education of the next generation, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, is one of the key priorities for INPEX’s community investment program. Since 2015, INPEX has been providing scholarships through UWA and 13 scholarships have been awarded to date.

In 2020, scholarships were awarded to Jarrad McNeil and Madi Nelson. 

Jarrad is studying a Bachelor of Science and aspires to complete postgraduate studies in the Master of Professional Engineering. The flexible learning program offered at UWA appealed to Jarrad when selecting his university preference.

Madi is also studying a Bachelor of Science but her focus is on microbiology and immunology. Madi says that thanks to the INPEX scholarship, she is one step closer to her goal of a career in medical or environmental research.
