Scholarships help students to achieve their potential and enhance the experience of individuals who might otherwise struggle financially to maintain a place at university. While many consider academic performance, scholarships are also awarded for travel, sport, specific degrees, and to Indigenous students.

Featured Scholarship

Betty Josephine Fyffe Rural Health Scholarships

Betty Fyffe was a local Tamworth NSW girl who grew up in the surrounds of her father’s chemist shops. Betty trained and worked as a Nurse, and retained an absolute lifelong passion for Nursing.

In her will, Betty established the Elizabeth Cahill Fyffe Trust. This trust distributes funds to support students who are training in medicine, nursing and allied health.

Her legacy (1926-2019) supports the education and training of doctors, nurses and allied health professionals in the hope that many will return to rural areas to practice their profession.
