Trade & Horticulture Scholarships

Creating something amazing with your own hands, through manual labour, talent and skill is one of the most rewarding aspects of a trade career.

Being your own boss is a realistic option if you have learnt a trade, and you can carve your own niche to suit your personal interests. Women are increasingly excelling in some of the traditional male domains, reviving some trades with new approaches.

We work closely with our industry and training partners to ensure your BBM scholarship places you ahead of the game and on top of the current industry trends, including sustainability of materials and processes.

The BBM Global Trade Scholarship is your opportunity to go overseas, follow your passion, explore the possibilities and create the career you love.

 

Applications for 2021 are now closed.

Applications will reopen in April 2021 for travel in 2022.

What is your passion? It might be finding the best processes for restoring heritage cars, or maybe it is the driverless vehicle of the future.

The automotive industry is undergoing the greatest evolution in its history with the advent of electric propulsion and connected automated vehicles. These new technologies are vital for reducing emissions and will change the way we own, drive, use and repair and maintain vehicles.

This scholarship is your opportunity to upgrade your skills as an automotive technicians or auto-electrician to transition with the changes and maybe even take the lead.
