Leading and learning

We understand the value of leadership and learning to achieve growth and success. At Sydney Airport, we are dedicated to supporting emerging leaders in Sydney and NSW, as part of our commitment to strong and vibrant communities - now and in the future.

University of NSW

The Trevor Gerber SYD100 scholarship, announced as part of the airport’s centenary celebrations in 2019, will see one full scholarship awarded every year for the next one hundred years at the University of NSW (UNSW). It covers tuition and accommodation for a UNSW student to complete a Bachelor of Aviation Management or a double degree of Bachelor of Aviation Management and Commerce.

The scholarship focuses on bringing more diversity to the next generation of aviation leaders. It provides under-represented groups in the industry with access to education, including people with diverse cultural backgrounds, women and Indigenous students.

Surf Life Saving Sydney

Local organisations play an important role in the community by teaching children valuable life skills such as leadership and teamwork, as well as supporting the community to lead healthy lifestyles. We are proud to support young people in our community, and the valuable social networks that sport provides the entire community.

Surf Life Saving Sydney: Sydney Airport has been a major sponsor of the Surf Life Saving Sydney Branch since 2001 providing support to the clubs, members, families and juniors across 15 beaches from North Bondi to Burning Palms in the Royal National Park. Skills building, training and development are integral parts of the learning process for junior life savers and Sydney Airport is honoured to provide critical funding to continue their education and help keep our beaches safe.
