The UniSC 1996 Society Honours Scholarships are to encourage and support students commencing an Honours program, with a long term view to enter the research field.

The UniSC 1996 Society is the vehicle in which supporters of UniSC, members of the community, alumni, and staff, can contribute to the University’s general endowment, the UniSC Visionaries Fund. The UniSC 1996 Society Honours Scholarship is made possible by the generous support of the members and visionaries who contribute to the endowment.

Scholarship payments will be made approximately three weeks after Census Date, once enrolment has been confirmed.
