IT Upskill Scholarship

IT Upskill is an annual scholarship program open to current members of IT Professionals Australia.

The aims of the scholarship are to demonstrate our commitment to supporting the professional development needs of IT Professionals and to highlight the key role continuing professional development (CPD) plays in maintaining high professional standards.

Why a Scholarship program?

We want our IT Professionals to understand that we are committed to investing in their CPD.

The scholarship program provides members with a cash incentive of $500 towards the professional development activity they choose as relevant to their individual needs.

How does it operate?

The scholarship will be awarded on an annual basis. The member who is awarded the scholarship will receive $500 cash to spend on skills development in the area of their choice.
