Scott Williams Foundation Study Support Bursary

Scholarship applications for Semester 2 2022 will open 1 May 2022.

Offered for the first time in Semester 2, 2016, the Scott Williams Foundation Study Support Bursary provides funds to support continuing undergraduate business students with financial need. Students need to have successfully completed one semester of study in a business or combined business program and be able to demonstrate academic merit and leadership skills.

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

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.
