Study support bursary for continuing full time undergraduate students enrolled at USC Gympie campus

The Rotary Club of Gympie Bursary is awarded to a student with demonstrated financial need studying at the USC Gympie Campus. Established in 2016, this Bursary aims to increase access to university education in the Gympie region and encourage recipients to apply more time to their studies in order to increase retention and encourage academic achievement of students from low socio-economic backgrounds.

The Bursary is paid in eight fortnightly instalments of A$250 [A$2,000].

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.
