Heller Foundation Study Support Bursary

Scholarship applications for Semester 2, 2021 will open on 1 April 2021.

Study support bursaries for continuing undergraduate students who are enrolled in their second year of any undergraduate program at USC.

The Heller Foundation Study Support Bursaries are made available through the generosity of the Heller Foundation to support ongoing students.

Three bursaries each year will be offered to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and five bursaries each year will be open to all eligible students.

It is intended that recipients will be able to commit more time to their studies and engaging in university life, with less time in paid employment. Students working long hours during the semester period are encouraged to apply.

The bursaries will be valued at A$2,000 and paid in fortnightly instalments over Semester 2.

Please note: This bursary is offered on a yearly basis through funds provided by an external donor. If funding is not available in any given year, the bursary will not be awarded.
