The Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation has joined with The McCusker Charitable Foundation to create the inaugural Leeuwin Uni Challenge, a chance for 40 students to receive a scholarship, worth $1800, towards a seven-day voyage along the WA coast on the STS Leeuwin II.
The partnership will also enable high-profile West Australians to talk to the winners.
Leeuwin Ocean Adventure chief executive Anne-Marie Archer said they were grateful for the support of the foundation.
‘The chance to sail on the Leeuwin is an opportunity of a lifetime,’ she said.
The uni challenge will run from November 24 to 30. Young people aged 18 to 25 are eligible to apply at www.sailleeuwin.com before October 15.
