Reed Family Study Support Bursaries

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

Study support bursaries for continuing undergraduate students who have completed at least one semester in any undergraduate program at USC.

Reed Family Study Support Bursaries are paid to students from low socio-economic backgrounds, with a preference for students who must work to support their studies. 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.

The Reed family have been outstanding philanthropic contributors to the Sunshine Coast and the fulfilment of this pledge underlines the esteem with which the community hold this family.  

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.
