Experience Oz Scholarship

The Purpose

As a commercial organisation devoted to walking the balance between tourism and technology, we aim to encourage young and upcoming members of Australian society to engage in the pursuit of either of these fields and help push both sectors in our country forward.

Why Travel and Technology?

As a country, tourism plays a large role in the Australian economy, however in many ways our tourism industry is lagging far behind the rest of the world in terms of technological knowhow and integration. Many tour companies still use dated, paper-based booking systems, for example, while the online design and user interface categories are also largely not up to par on the world stage. We aim to encourage students with technical aptitude to push forward in integrating travel and technology both now and in the future.
