Applications Now Open

APPLICATIONS FOR 2023 NOW OPEN

Applications for the 2023 Mannkal Scholarship Program are now open.

We are accepting applications for a strictly limited time only, with applications closing on Friday, October 21, 2022.

Participation in a one year Mannkal Scholarship Program includes 10-12 local seminars and events, entrepreneurship training, employability skills development, conference opportunities and an invitation to apply for internships both domestically and abroad. Mannkal covers the full cost of these opportunities. Our program starts mid-February 2023 and includes an online economics course that can be completed in your own time over the summer break.

The Mannkal Scholarship Program is open to Western Australian university students studying any degree and major. We are always looking for enthusiastic students interested in philosophy, economics and public policy.

Mannkal believes that exceptional character leads to success. We are committed to developing and growing all students who walk through our doors.

Follow us on Facebook to keep in touch with event and seminar announcements and information regarding future Mannkal Scholarships and conference opportunities. 

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for enrolment in the Mannkal Scholarship Program, you must:
  • Be enrolled as an undergraduate, graduate or postgraduate student (part-time or full-time) at a Western Australian university whilst participating in the program;
  • Hold either Australian citizenship or permanent residency*;
  • Be based in Western Australia.
*International students are not eligible; in very rare circumstances, an exception may be made. However, international students are very welcome to attend our seminars and events.

Above all, Mannkal values initiative and enthusiasm for a free and open society. We consider students from across all faculties, departments and backgrounds. Course marks are one consideration, but this should not exclude students who have made contributions in other areas.

Aspects of the Mannkal Scholarship Program benefit from a formal study of economics and public policy, but a keen interest and awareness of the philosophical concepts behind these subjects is more important.

Places are subject to availability and may change without notice.

Selection Process

During the application process, you will be expected to submit a cover letter, your CV and answer a questionnaire. If you qualify, you will then be invited in for an interview.

Mannkal Scholarships are highly sought after, and places are strictly limited. Please ensure that you follow all directions when applying. 

Applications close Friday, October 21, 2022.
