Westpac Scholars Trust has released its 2021 Impact Report which documents the progress of the Westpac Scholars Program in 2021 and celebrates the impact Westpac Scholars are creating in Australia. 


As the nation emerges from COVID and grapples with many complex social and environmental issues, we are looking to a new generation of leadership - leaders with new ideas, diverse voices, and inclusive approaches - to find innovative solutions.


In our 2021 Impact Report there are many examples of Westpac Scholars becoming new generation leaders – both those who are at the start of their careers and those whose work is already changing lives for the better.


These individuals are just some of the 564 Westpac Scholars in whom the Trust, in partnership with 14 universities across Australia, has so far invested $31 million.
