Eric Fuss was an alumnus of the University of Adelaide, graduating with a BA in 1967. As an English teacher who lived in Burra, he was greatly admired as a quiet achiever and made a huge contribution to Burra’s written history.  Over many years he generously shared his knowledge about the town and district’s history with researchers and was the author of many publications.

The Eric Fuss Undergraduate Scholarship in History has been established to support one undergraduate student commencing a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Arts (Advanced) program of study majoring in History at the University of Adelaide.

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 candidates will be made according to financial need and answers to questions on the application form. 

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 cannot be deferred. If a student declines the Scholarship offer, the Scholarship will be offered to the next eligible student.

Students must not hold any other scholarship either administered by the University of Adelaide or external organisations.
