Western Sydney University is a world class university covering 10 campuses across Greater Western Sydney. With over 44,000 students and 3,000 staff, it’s ranked among the top three percent of universities in the world and has students from over 100 nationalities.

Our partnership with Western Sydney University goes hand in hand with our mission to share and grow with our community.

We are launching the Scenic World Scholarship Fund to help ambitious Blue Mountains residents from disadvantaged backgrounds to follow their dream of studying a bachelor’s degree in environmental science or tourism management.

The fund will open the doors to new opportunities for Blue Mountains locals, with whole-of-degree scholarships of $7,500 per year (up to $30,000 per student) awarded annually to four students over the following four years.




  • The latest statistics show that less than 25% of Blue Mountains residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher
  • More than 60% of students who attend WSU are first in their family to attend university, and 25% of students come from low socio economic backgrounds
  • In 2015, over 1000 young people from the Blue Mountains enrolled at WSU
