1968 Singapore Colombo Plan Students Scholarship
This Scholarship was established by a group of Colombo Plan Students from Singapore who studied at the University of Newcastle from 1968 within the then Faculty of Engineering. On the 40th anniversary of their first entering the University of Newcastle, and, at a very different stage of their lives, the donors have decided to establish a Scholarship. This Scholarship is 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. One scholarship is to be awarded annually to a 2nd year student from the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment.
The successful applicant may also be eligible for the 1968 Singapore Colombo Plan Students (Memorial) Scholarship, valued at a further $3,600, for the following year subject to meeting academic requirements.
