Fifty Acres Scholarship

As a virtual agency, Fifty Acres is a huge believer in the opportunities that the Internet provides for companies, small businesses and careers. We’re also a huge believer in providing students with the opportunity and tools to succeed in the communications industry.

Combining these two passions, each year Fifty Acres is offering a scholarship for two students enrolled in a certificate, diploma or degree relating to media or communications to assist with their study costs. These include:

  • One scholarship of $500 for a communications or media student from regional or rural Australia
  • One scholarship of $500 for an Indigenous communications or media student.

If you would like to apply for one of these scholarships, please send an email outlining which scholarship you are applying for, a copy of your academic record, two references from lecturers and 300 words about your plans for a future in the communications industry to info@fiftyacres.com by 31 December 2015.

Internships

Fifty Acres also offers 'virtual' internships to students from regional or rural Australia and Indigenous students. The successful applicants will be passionate about forging a career in media and communications, and must be required to undertake an internship for their program of study. Applicants must be able to access the Internet and a landline through their learning institution as well as be covered by their learning institution’s insurance for the period of the internship. 

The successful applicants will have the opportunity to work with a range of clients, from corporates and government departments to dynamic Not-For-Profits and will gain an understanding of media, stakeholder and government relations tasks. 

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.

Please email your application to info@fiftyacres.com with Internship Application in your subject heading.
