IGNITING STARS THROUGH SCHOLARSHIPS

We offer 3 scholarships every year
Just starting out your studies? At Manteena, we’ve partnered with the University of Canberra to offer a number of scholarships to students studying the Bachelor of Building & Construction Management or other UC courses related to the property and construction industry.


The Manteena Scholarship for Leaders in Construction will assist you with your studies, and to provide you with real industry experience and mentoring for the duration of your degree. It’ll also help you develop your leadership skills, which are of so much value in the construction industry.

We offer one scholarship every year – it’s valued at approximately $15,000 across the three years of the recipient’s degree.

Applications open 1 May 2017 and close 18 August 2017.

Our second scholarship is the Property and Construction Inclusion Scholarship – its aim is to promote diversity and harmony in academia, specifically to support students from disadvantaged backgrounds studying UC courses related to the property and construction industry. It’s valued at $5,000 per year.

The Property and Construction Inclusion Scholarship is open to students in their penultimate year of study undertaking a degree program related to the property and construction industry. Two scholarships are awarded each year – one is preferably awarded to the highest ranked female applicant and one to the highest ranked male. The recipients will hold the scholarship for a one year period and receive the scholarship in two installments.

Applications open May 2017 and early September 2017.
