1968 Singapore Colombo Plan Students Scholarship and 1968 Singapore Colombo Plan Students (Memorial) Scholarship
|Amount$8000||Number Available1||FacultyFaculty of Engineering and Built Environment|
|Donor||1968 Singapore Colombo Plan Students|
These two scholarships work together to support an excellent student in the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment.
The 1968 Singapore Colombo Plan Students Scholarship supports a worthy student in the 2nd year of an Engineering degree. Should the student achieve the required results, the scholar will at the beginning of 3rd year Engineering be required to submit an essay on Singapore. If this is of an acceptable standard the scholar will automatically be given the 1968 Singapore Colombo Plan Students (Memorial) Scholarship to support 3rd year engineering degree studies.
The 1968 Singapore Colombo Plan Students Scholarship was established in 2008 by a group of Colombo Plan Students from Singapore who studied at the University of Newcastle from 1968 in the Faculty of Engineering, as it was then known. On the 40th anniversary of their first entering the University of Newcastle, and at a very different stage of their lives, the donors decided to establish a Scholarship to commemorate the fond and happy memories of their stay at Newcastle and to show their appreciation to the Australian and Newcastle community who helped them with their University education during their tender and formative years.
Three of the original donors on seeing the benefit of the scholarship decided in 2010 to establish the 1968 Singapore Colombo Plan Students (Memorial) Scholarship which would allow them to continue to support the student in third year engineering, subject to meeting eligibility requirements.

Selection is a competitive process and will be based on assessment of the scholarship application and any required supporting documents.
Should the successful recipient of the 1968 Singapore Colombo Plan Students Scholarship achieve the required results to receive the 1968 Singapore Colombo Plan Students (Memorial) Scholarship in the following third year of studies, the 1968 Singapore Colombo Plan Students Scholar will be required to submit an essay of approximately 400 words on Singapore.
