BPS Technology has partnered with Bond University to create a unique scholarship opportunity. Since inception 8 years ago, the scholarship has provided over $1 million in fee support to 35 Australian students across a range of disciplines.

BPS Technology Scholarship

Each year, BPS Technology offers six scholarships to accelerate future leaders at Australia’s only private not-for-profit university. 

The BPS Technology Scholarship (formerly the Bartercard Scholarship) is open to Year 12 children of staff at BPS Technology and its subsidiaries including Bartercard Australia, Entertainment Book, bucqi and TESS.  It is also open to Year 12 children of Bartercard members. This scholarship covers 50% of tuition fees towards a single undergraduate or postgraduate degree at Bond University. 

What degrees are available under the BPS Technology Scholarship?

The BPS Technology Scholarship is available to students wishing to study any single undergraduate degree at Bond University (excluding the Bond Medical Program). Previous Scholarship recipients have studied in a range of disciplines covering business, law, journalism biomedical science, environmental science and interactive media. 

Twenty-year-old Tani Stubbs who attended All Saints Anglican School is a recipient of the scholarship and will complete a Bachelor of Business majoring in Management in 2018.    

She’s already a budding business leader, founding a charity at the age of 17 which sets up sister school relationships, fits out classrooms and develops hospitals in less fortunate countries. 

“EDGE (Everyone Deserves a Global Education) works with suppliers in Australia to fit-out schools and hospitals in Tonga and Samoa with essential classroom and medical equipment.  So far we’ve furnished three schools, provided computer access to a combined 3,000 students and rebuilt a hospital.” 

The Young Achiever Award Finalist and Young Australian of the Year Nominee went to Bond University’s Open Day and instantly knew she wanted to study there.

“Bond University degrees are recognised all over the world and as soon as I stepped on campus I fell in love with the place.  My degree will teach me the business skills to run EDGE full time when I graduates next year.


Accelerating future business leaders

Stephanie Marr was awarded with a BPS Technology Scholarship to study at Bond University after finishing Year 12 at All Saints Anglican School in 2011. She has since completed a Bachelor of Behaviour Management, a Master of Criminology and is currently employed full-time in her chosen field.

At Bond, Stephanie was awarded with five out of five consecutive Vice-Chancellor (VC) awards. To obtain these awards, students must finish the semester with an average of at least 85% across all subjects taken, or a minimum of three high distinctions out of four subject areas. Students who obtain these prestigious awards are in the top 2% of those enrolled at the university. As well as these five academic awards, Stephanie also received the highest overall grade for three of her subjects, placing her on the university’s academic roll of honour.

“Bond equipped me with the practical tools and skills to deal with people from all walks of life, especially at a young age,” she said.  

“I aspire to continue working with those who have been involved with the justice system, and a degree at Bond has shaped my future in this direction” 

The scholarship has consistently delivered amazing talent to the University’s campus.

“For the past eight years, Bartercard has provided incredible, life-changing opportunities for 35 students through our scholarship partnership. Bond is committed to providing increased study opportunities for as many students as possible, and through the generosity of organisations like Bartercard, we are able to deliver on this commitment.

These scholarships are awarded to bright and ambitious students and our Bartercard scholars have excelled not just in their school studies but through their active involvement in industry internships, student associations and activities, and their commitment to helping the wider community.

We proudly partner with Bartercard Australia, whose values of innovation, connectivity and ambition align so well with those of Bond University, and we look forward to welcoming the next generation of scholars to our campus in 2018.”
