Project Global Citizen Scholarship Program

As part of the Student Employability Program, Study Sunshine Coast was the first Queensland region to offer students fully funded scholarships to participate in Project Global Citizen (PGC). Thirty five Sunshine Coast students participated in this premium personal and professional development course held from March to May 2020.

The PGC scholarship program is designed for international and domestic students seeking to develop their Cultural Intelligence for studying,  living and working across cultures as global citizens.

Participating in the PGC program, the 35 students developed the right cross-cultural skills to be employable in any global organisation around the world. Furthermore scholars are now better positioned to thrive in their studies here in Australia, feeling more integrated into Australian society to have a safe and enjoyable experience.

At the end of the 8-week blended learning course, the students were certified with a micro credential they can now showcase on their CV and LinkedIn profile to verify their Cultural Intelligence and integration into the Australian community.

The qualification also acknowledges their acquisition of specific cross-cultural competencies highly sought after within the professional landscape.
