Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment Scholarship for Disadvantaged Students
To celebrate the University of Newcastle's 50th year the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment have established a scholarship fund for disadvantaged students.
This allows a $4,000 scholarship to be awarded specifically to a current student in the Faculty. The more support we receive, the more scholarships we can award to these students who are most in need.
Anyone can contribute to the fund. Any amount is gratefully received – no matter how big or small. The more money raised, the more scholarships can be awarded and the more students will be helped. 100 per cent of donations go directly to the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment scholarship fund for disadvantaged students.
To be eligible for this scholarship students need to be academically capable but also facing hardship from factors such as being from a low socio-economic background, coming from a rural or remote area, living with a disability, or have carer or parenting responsibilities - or a combination of these challenges.
Students must also be enrolled full-time in any year of any undergraduate degree program. Both international and domestic students are eligible for this scholarship.
