USC Study Support Bursary

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

Study support bursary for full-time students who have completed at least one semester at USC

The USC Study Support Bursary is made available through the generosity of many individuals and organisations in the community including: Mr Roy and Mrs Nola Thompson, Mr Scott Williams AM, the Heller Foundation, USC staff and alumni contributions through the USC Starfish Program, and donations to USC’s annual giving day, G-Day.

Study Support Bursaries are paid in fortnightly instalments over one or two semesters.

The intention of the bursary is to assist 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.
