What is Scholars' Week?
In 2013, once again the University of Newcastle is joining with our generous supporters to celebrate outstanding student achievements. Each of the University's faculties will hold a series of ceremonies to award scholarships to their deserving recipients.
Scholarships recognise excellence in academic, research, artistic or athletic fields. They also provide financial aid for students who otherwise may have missed out on an opportunity to attend University. Scholarships provide support, confidence and encouragement, keeping students motivated and helping them to focus on their goals.
Why do we need more Scholarships?
We hope that through successful fundraising we will increase both the number of high achieving students and the support we can provide for them. The more diverse and talented students we can attract, the better the potential for learning and research. This will also lead to greater success of our graduates and therefore increased benefit to our community and our world. Help us to help our future students achieve by donating a scholarship.To find out more about establishing a scholarship click here or contact the University of Newcastle Foundation on +612 49217 453 or email UONFoundation@newcastle.edu.au
