The Liveris Undergraduate Scholarship was established in 2019 by global business leader Andrew Liveris and his wife Paula Liveris. The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage and support outstanding students at The University of Queensland, who have the potential to lead solutions to some of the world’s most pressing sustainability challenges. The Scholarship provides $10,000 for each year that it is held, plus up to $10,000 travel support from the Liveris Academy for an approved gap semester, exchange or internship opportunity.
Liveris Scholars will receive world-class training and mentoring in leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship, systems thinking, digital technologies, and sustainability. Scholars will enjoy exclusive access to Liveris Academy events and activities, including mentoring by Leaders in Residence, representing industry, entrepreneurship and policy/humanitarian fields. Liveris Scholars will also receive automatic entry in to the EAIT Faculty Scholars Program, which provides the Faculty’s top students with enhanced academic, industry and cultural experiences.
Graduates of the Liveris Academy will become part of an actively engaged global Alumni network. Liveris Academy Alumni will be involved in the selection of future generations of Liveris Scholars, will be regularly invited back to The University of Queensland to participate in Academy events, and will become mentors to those who follow in their footsteps. Liveris Academy Alumni cohort will form a pipeline of top-talent for organisations globally.
The Liveris Academy offers many opportunities for organisations and individuals to collaborate more proactively with The University of Queensland.
On completion of the Andrew N. Liveris Building in 2021, The Liveris Academy will occupy a modern, collaborative space in the 11-storey, state-of-the-art engineering education and research hub at UQ’s St Lucia campus.
