The Dr Richard Oertel Scholarship has been established by Bronwyn Ellis, also a graduate of this university, in memory of her late husband Dr Richard Oertel who graduated in Science from the University of Adelaide in 1970, then with First Class Honours in Mathematics in 1971. He subsequently completed a PhD in Applied Mathematics, which was conferred in 1976. He later completed a Diploma in Computing Science (1979). Dr Oertel had a passion for mathematics and science.

The Scholarship will support one commencing undergraduate student undertaking the Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Science (Advanced), Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences, Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences (Advanced) or Bachelor of Mathematical & Computer Sciences program of study or equivalent at the University of Adelaide.

Applicants must be Australian citizens, New Zealand citizens or holders of a permanent humanitarian visa undertaking study as a Commonwealth supported student and must remain enrolled on a part time or 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 included in the scholarship application.  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 payments, such as Youth Allowance, Austudy, ABSTUDY benefits or other details of their financial circumstances.

Students in receipt of other University of Adelaide Scholarships may not apply for this Scholarship.
