We believe in the power of events to inspire, equip and connect people to think bigger and think differently about what is possible in our industry.

That is why we offer scholarships for individuals from Australia or New Zealand to attend our BILT ANZ 2021 conference, where they can:

  • Step out of their daily routines;
  • Build new connections both within the region and beyond;
  • Develop leadership skills;
  • Be inspired to think bigger and think differently about their work, and;
  • Contribute their voices and perspectives to national and international conversations.

Each scholarship includes complimentary registration for all three (3) days of BILT ANZ 2021 (including social events), valued at $2,250 AUD.  Flights and accommodation (if required) are the responsibility of the applicant.

We hope to make these opportunities available to a diverse array of people, across sectors and demographics.  These scholarships are for :

  1. People employed on a part-time or casual basis, on parental leave or not currently employed; or
  2. Full-time students

We invite you to apply for these scholarships to reconnect, learn and engage.
