Scholarships for Chileans at the University of Queensland

When we think of Chile and Australia, to find commonalities is not the easiest thing to do. There are some links. For instance, both are capitalist economies. Both are highly developed. Something that it quite particular to both, however is their heavy dependence on natural resources. More specifically it is the fact that they are both extractors of minerals from the ground. While there are more details to bee borne on these, Australia is a chief producer of iron, and Chile a producer of copper. They also share a common ocean. This is the Pacific Ocean. That does not mean that they are close geographically, however. They are also getting farther and farther away from one another because of tectonic plate movement. This does not stop the two nations from getting closer to one another in academic terms. This is why the CONICYT Becas Chile was established at the University of Queensland.

The CONICYT Becas Chile seeks to help both future and current students from Chile study at the University of Queensland, but also other universities. It is awarded to both Chilean citizens, as well as those other nationalities who presently have permanent residence in Chile. Like a lot of other international scholarships, it is aimed at postgraduate courses. Those may be either coursework or research. Those who obtain the scholarships are expected to either start or continue their studies which will lead to either a master’s of PhD degree at leading institutions of higher education outside of Chile.

The scholarships have a simple goal. This goal is to prepare students to study in any country other than Chile in all and any academic subject. When the students return to Chile, they are expected to use their new knowledge to contribute to the development of the country is economic, social, cultural, academic, and scientific terms. The scholarship depends on merit and work experience, as well as demonstrable academic achievement. Among the requirements are that the student has shown improvement in their level of English, the financial backing to cover tuition fees, and a Masters degree if they choose to study for a PhD. The scholarship itself will cover the full cost of tuition over the full duration of the programme.

As you can see, the requirements are quite simple, and benefits generous. Given this fact, all Chileans should be expected to apply for the scholarship.
