The Anglicare SA 150 Augustus Short Scholarship was established to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the St Peter's Cathedral and the Right Reverend Dr Augustus Short, the first Anglican bishop in South Australia. Dr Augustus Short was also a pioneer in the founding of the University of Adelaide and believed that tertiary education should be accessible to all students of high academic merit, regardless of birth or wealth. 

Thanks to the generous support of Anglicare SA, the Anglicare SA 150 Augustus Short Scholarship is available to a commencing student of high academic merit who has relocated from a rural or remote area and is experiencing challenging financial circumstances or another disadvantage.

Applicants must be Australian Citizens, permanent residents of Australia or holders of a permanent humanitarian visa undertaking study as a Commonwealth supported student and must remain enrolled on a full time basis in the program for which the scholarship was approved.

Selection of the successful candidate will be made by the Coursework Scholarships Office according to academic merit and demonstrated financial need. Academic merit will be determined according to ATAR or equivalent scores.

Students in receipt of other University of Adelaide Scholarships may apply for this Scholarship.
