This scholarship has been established by a bequest from the Estate of Viney Robertson in memory of her late father, Donald Alexander Robertson, who studied law at The University of Adelaide and graduated in 1934, as well as a gift from Rhona Margaret Seiler, the grand-daughter of Donald Alexander Robertson.

One scholarship shall be awarded to a student undertaking the third and subsequent years of the Bachelor of Laws program of study at the University of Adelaide. The scholarship will provide financial assistance to students to assist in meeting educational and living costs.

Applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia and undertaking a Bachelor of Laws program of study at the University of Adelaide. Students should have successfully completed the equivalent of two full time years of the course and be continuing to undertake study on a full time basis as a Commonwealth Supported student.

Selection of the successful candidates will be made according to academic merit and financial need. Academic merit for continuing students will be determined according to the students' cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) 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  major University of Adelaide Scholarship may not apply for this Scholarship.
