  • Scholarships

    Scholarships attract high-calibre students from Australia and abroad. They act as an incentive for students to strive for and achieve excellence in their studies. They also provide support for students who might otherwise be unable to take up a university place or complete their study.

    The University of Adelaide recognises that those who are financially or educationally disadvantaged should not be denied access to quality tertiary education. You may wish to provide a scholarship for a student from a rural or regional community, indigenous, a student in financial need, first generation or a top performing student.

    Please contact Rebecca Pym, Development and Alumni Officer, for further information. View current scholarships.

  • Sponsorships

    Each year the School hosts a Mentor Teachers Awards Evening and Education Leaders Breakfast. Both events involve industry leaders, students and staff. We welcome the opportunity to discuss the possibility of you being involved in assisting financially through sponsorship whether for events or other School projects. Please email the School for further information.

  • Prizes
    Prizes award students who have demonstrated excellence in their academic courses. Prizes are awarded in a variety of amounts, however we respectfully ask that they be a minimum amount of $500 to ensure they have a significant impact on the student. We can help you decide where your financial support is best directed to reflect your connection to the School and industry. Please contact the School for further information.
