Poly Australia awards first scholarship recipient as preparations begin to launch 2018 Poly Australia Graduate Program

July 28th, 2017

Poly Australia is proud to support Western Sydney University (WSU) with our first ever Poly Australia Real Estate Construction Management Scholarship recipient being formally awarded.

Last week, we welcomed Matthew Shaw to our Sydney office to formally present him with Poly Australia’s first scholarship.

As part of the scholarship, (valued at $10,000 for one year’s study) Matthew will also attain an internship with Poly Australia.

The annual scholarship is the first in what will be an ongoing partnership with Western Sydney University.

Matthew, who is from Katoomba, is a deserving recipient, someone who has worked extremely hard over the past 5 years studying and working full-time. Not to mention a daily 2-hour hour commute.

He has shown a strong dedication and passion in what he is trying to achieve.

Matthew said he was extremely grateful for the experience, “I have been truly humbled by the fantastic opportunity presented to me by Poly Australia and look forward to making my contribution to the team in the near future,” he said.

As part of Poly Australia’s commitment to education, the WSU scholarship will be joined by Poly Australia’s own internal Graduate Program commencing in 2018.

The Graduate Program will be open to students from all major universities in NSW studying a range of disciplines from marketing through to architecture and construction. The program will offer one year full-time paid experience at Poly Australia and has been designed to maximise exposure to each department and play an important role in the future of Poly’s upcoming projects.

More information about the Poly Australia Graduate Program will be released in the coming months, including information about the application process.
