Details of Study Scholarship
The specific eligibility criteria and the terms of the scholarship can be read at Jade Finance Australia of which Jade Car Loans is a business arm.

Providers may include universities, TAFE, colleges and others.
The main part of the application is the 800 word submission on the theme of lending and finance, which is our business focus. But applicants can be studying in any tertiary field. Within that general theme, applicants have the latitude to select their own topic which may be associated with their field of study or general interest.
Applications with the original written response will be assessed by the judging panel. The application deemed the most outstanding will receive the $5000 study scholarship. The funds are to go towards the study expenses.
Inspiration for Written Response
The written response must be the original work of the applicant and can cover their choice of topic within the theme of finance and lending. To provide inspiration, our team has come up with some suggestions to start those thought processes.
The motor vehicle finance sector is one of the largest in Australia with many lenders and many customers wanting car loans. Cars and business vehicles are still the major form of transport in Australia and that many new car buyers will require finance to make their purchase.
As such a large area of finance, there are many aspects which may be explored in the submission. Law students may have ideas around finance and lending laws. Technology and IT students may address that aspect of how finance is offered and secured and how new tech can better be utilised. Humanities students may focus on social issues and how the lending sector can better address finance needs.
A major topic of interest in the motor vehicle sector is reduction of carbon emissions. Cars are one of the biggest global emitters and manufacturers have been working hard to produce vehicles with less emissions. Governments and others have been pushing hard to encourage the take-up of electric vehicles.
Amid the push for policies and direction on climate change, applicants might like to explore the role of motor vehicle finance lenders in promoting climate change and supporting buyers that choose low-emitting and alternative fuel vehicles.
That is just the tip of the iceberg of what students can address in their submission and we look forward to being impressed with the ideas that emerge in the applications.
