The Year 12 stu­dent re­ceived the John Curtin Schol­ar­ship for his dou­ble de­gree in engi­neer­ing and physics to help him achieve his dream of a ca­reer in tech­nol­ogy and soft­ware de­sign.

Ben re­ceived the award for his aca­demic ex­cel­lence as well as cul­tural in­volve­ment, lead­er­ship and com­mu­nity ser­vice.

He said he was hon­oured to re­ceive the award and was look­ing for­ward to start­ing his de­gree and achiev­ing his goals.

“Ul­ti­mately I’d like to work with quan­tum com­put­ers,” he said.

The schol­ar­ship cov­ers the cost of an un­der­grad­u­ate ed­u­ca­tion at Curtin Univer­sity by pro­vid­ing an an­nual stipend of $2000 and cov­er­ing stu­dent fees or pro­vid­ing an an­nual stipend of $8000, with an ad­di­tional $6000 for an ap­proved in­ter­na­tional ex­pe­ri­ence.
