Paula Cartwright – 2021/2022 Winner of SUT-Perth “Digital Automation in Engineering” Scholarship

“The scholarship allowed me to buy a new laptop and to attend the 5 day Subsea Awareness Course, including some site visits where we saw first-hand some of the equipment mentioned in lectures. I have been able to meet people in the subsea industry at many different stages in their careers, and have received great insights and advice on this Industry.”
2017 and 2018 Scholarship winner – Liam Salter



”The SUT scholarship has provided the opportunity for me to engage with others in the subsea industry who I otherwise might not have had the chance to meet. In particular being a member of the YES! committee has been excellent for meeting young engineers in the industry. The funds will allow me to travel to the UK for an exchange program and to present my work at a conference, but without a doubt the networking opportunities have been the best part of the scholarship.”
2018 Chris Lawlor Scholarship winner – Guy McCauley

”As a recipient of the 2017 SUT scholarship, I have been very grateful for the opportunities that this scholarship has provided for both my research and career. Since receiving the scholarship, I have been able to present my research at multiple international conferences and enrol in different training courses such as SUT’s Subsea Awareness Course. The scholarship enabled me to develop international collaborations for my research as well as engage with industry through the courses and technical seminars. As someone from academia, this scholarship opened a different world to me and I’m glad that I took this chance to apply!”
2017 Chris Lawlor Scholarship winner – Danielle Su

”Winning the prestigious SUT Chris Lawlor 2016 scholarship meant a lot to me; not only did it contribute to finance a field trip and several conferences but also, becoming a Student Liaison Officer accelerated my career progression, providing motivation, great encouragement and opportunities to develop a strong professional network.”
2016 Chris Lawlor Scholarship Winner – Giada Bufarale

‘In addition to financial support, the scholarship was also a professional endorsement that allowed me to successfully market myself to graduate employers. The award was noted during a number of interviews, and the early engagement in relevant societies was appreciated. Most of my applications for graduate employment resulted in job offers. Confidence gained as a result of the feedback and coaching from the SUT team drove this success. The rewards from the SUT scholarship are numerous. Use the process as a reflective exercise. Think about what you want to gain from your career, your Strengths and your weaknesses.  Seek review from members of industry where possible. There is nothing to lose.’’
2016 Scholarship Winner – Yasmin Smith

“Winning the SUT scholarship has had a great impact during my PhD studies in terms of both the networking opportunities gains as well as the ability to travel to  USA to industry conferences to present my research. As winner of the award, I met a number of people at SUT events with whom I may not have otherwise had  contact, which was aided by the recognition gained as the scholarship winner.”
2016 Scholarship Winner – Joe Tom

“It allowed me to focus on my design project and thesis in the lead-up to my graduation for my mechanical engineering degree, without financial stress.   The opportunities and new friends made through the SUT scholarship experience was extremely valuable, and for that, I’m thankful.”
2015 Scholarship Winner – Lucien Nguyen

“The SUT scholarship provided the opportunity to sit on the SUT YES! Committee and attend several SUT events which allowed me to network with key people within the Perth oil & gas community. The free training courses provided me with a much greater understanding of the subsea industry prior to graduating from university. This greatly assisted me in gaining a position with DOF Subsea Australia as a Graduate Engineer. If you are interested in  a career within the subsea oil and gas industry I strongly recommend the SUT scholarship.”
2015 Scholarship Winner – Heath Murrie
