The Chancellor's Scholarship has been established by Chancellor Catherine Branson AC QC to support undergraduate students commencing study at the University of Adelaide.

One scholarship shall be awarded to an undergraduate student commencing study at the University of Adelaide. The scholarship provides financial assistance with educational and living costs for up to 4 years. The scholarship also provides a fee waiver for the recipient's contribution in a Commonwealth Supported Place for the first year of the scholarship.

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 approved program for which the Scholarship was approved.

Selection of the successful candidate will be made according to academic merit, financial need and answers to questions on the application form. Academic merit for commencing students will be determined according to ATAR or equivalent scores.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate financial need and be able to provide supporting documentary evidence at the time of application, e.g. details of income tested Commonwealth income support payment, such as Youth Allowance, Austudy, ABSTUDY benefits, or other details of their financial circumstances.

The Scholarship must be taken up in the year in which it is offered: acceptance of the scholarship offer cannot be deferred. If a student declines the Scholarship offer, the Scholarship will be offered to the next eligible student.

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