An Indian management student who migrated to Australia six years ago has become the inaugural recipient of a UNSW scholarship designed to open up aviation to under-represented groups.
Sydney Airport will pay for Manmeet Kaur to study at the university’s School of Aviation in a scheme that the business hopes will run every year for 100 years.
The airport’s chief executive, Geoff Culbert, said the SYD100 initiative “provides under-represented groups in our industry with access to the education they need, including people with diverse cultural backgrounds, women and Indigenous students”.
Kaur is a first-year aviation management student at UNSW, and migrated to Australia from India six years ago.
