At BCG, our purpose is to unlock the potential of those who advance the world. We solve the toughest challenges and drive impact by bringing together diverse, multidisciplinary teams from across our businesses and geographies. 

We are looking for driven, curious students who are excited by a challenge and want to have a positive impact on their communities, whether local, national or global. 

If that sounds like you, we want to get to know you and help you reach your goals.  We invite you to join our community as a Scholar and/or as a graduate employee.  

As a BCG Scholar, you will receive $20,000 in scholarship funding, a mentor through the remainder of your studies and a full-time graduate job offer with BCG ANZ.   

As a graduate at BCG, you will be tackling the toughest challenges, benefiting from accelerated learning that serves you for a lifetime, and working with a caring, diverse and inclusive community of exceptional people.
Scholarship overview
In 2022, we are offering three scholarships to students.

 We encourage applicants from all backgrounds and disciplines to apply - there is no 'standard type'. Our process is designed to help you get to know us and what we do at the same time as we are getting to know you. Through that process, we hope you come to see BCG as a place that provides an unparalleled start to your career and equips you to have the positive impact you seek. 

We particularly want to encourage applicants from backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented in our industry and empower them to become future leaders and change-makers. With that in mind, we offer two scholarships for students who identify specifically as:
 - Women or Non-Binary 
 - Indigenous (including Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islands, Māori or Pacific Island origin)  

Our third scholarship is open to all candidates who meet the eligibility and selection criteria. Anyone applying for one of the targeted scholarships will be automatically considered in this category as well.
