47 University of Newcastle Shaping Futures Scholarships in Australia, 2019
The Shaping Futures Scholarship Fund was established in 2011 with the aim of helping those students who are most in need.
To be eligible for a Shaping Futures Scholarship students need to be academically capable but also facing educational disadvantage such as financial hardship, relocation from a regional or remote area, a long term or recurrent medical condition or illness, carer or sole parenting responsibilities, an asylum seeker recently completing a UON enabling program, or a combination of these factors. It is hoped that the Shaping Futures Scholarships will provide much needed support for students to continue to overcome disadvantage and maintain their achievements.
These scholarships are funded entirely by generous donations from alumni, donors, staff, businesses and the community, and funds are continually sought via the Shaping Futures Appeal.
The scholarship provides a benefit of $4000 to be paid as a lump sum following selection and after Semester 1 census date (during April).
The number of scholarships awarded may vary according to the funding raised in each academic year. There are currently an estimated 47 scholarships available for 2019.
