As a young Queensland engineer working in the Electricity Supply Industry, how much would you learn and grow (professionally and personally) from an overseas professional work experience placement, in a countries of your choice, for a 9-18 month duration?
The E.S Cornwall Scholarship has been running for 60 years, and previous scholars have described their experiences as follows:
“Above all, it was a life changing experience and my wife and I fully immersed ourselves in travel, new friends, new experiences, and enriching our lives.”
Brian Becconsall (1965)
“In a profound way, this period has become a reference point in my professional life. Since then I have a broader toolkit and some great contacts. But the value of the experience goes far beyond my work objective. I consider it as one of the defining periods of my life.”
Frank Montiel (1998)
“The ES Cornwall scholarship is not only a great opportunity to further your career but also to see the world. The niche experience gained will be an asset to you professionally but will also benefit prospective employers and the Australian ESI as a whole.”
Aidan Roberts (2008)
“Aside from the work based activities, I have been fortunate enough to experience a different way of life and benefited from involving myself the variety of cultures and people in Europe, Northern Afri-ca & North America. I have many great memories from my time abroad, both professionally and personal – far too many to list.”
Nick Craig (2008)
