This Scholarship has been established by the Department of Primary Industries & Regions South Australia to support two commencing undergraduate students undertaking a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Science (Advanced) program of study at the University of Adelaide.

The Scholarship is open to Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students undertaking study as a Commonwealth supported student and must be enrolled in a full time basis in the approved program for which the Scholarship was approved.

Selection of the successful candidates will be made according to academic merit and financial need.

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 recipient may not transfer to a program other than the program for which the scholarship was awarded.

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.
