Association of Consulting Surveyors NSW


The Association of Consulting Surveyors NSW is the peak body representing Surveying firms in NSW. The Association was established in 1969 to serve the interests of Consulting Surveyors and the community of NSW. Our vision is to see thriving consulting surveyor businesses in every region and city across New South Wales where surveyors are recognised for underpinning the value of the economy. ACS is the leading voice of the surveying profession through advocacy and research, providing support to our member firms to build strong and thriving businesses through education.

The Association intends for these scholarships to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in achieving a career in surveying and to help them maintain a connection to their communities. Successful recipients will be offered opportunities to engage with association members, attend functions, gain work experience and receive mentorship from experienced Registered Surveyors.

In addition to the scholarship, non-compulsory work experience will be made available for students during holiday periods in various locations and practices to provide a greater depth of knowledge and understanding of the broader surveying industry.
