A grant from the State Government in conjunction with Flinders University has enabled the establishment of the Bob Such Memorial Scholarship. The aim of the scholarship is to provide financial assistance to students from the southern suburbs of Adelaide undertaking an undergraduate degree at Flinders University. Subject to the availability of funds, there will be a maximum of 12 scholarships awarded annually to the value of $2,500 each.

• normally reside in the southern suburbs of Adelaide (local government areas of Holdfast Bay, Marion, Mitcham and Onkaparinga); and
• be enrolled full-time at Flinders University in their second or subsequent year of a Flinders University undergraduate degree in Education or STEM areas (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics); and
• be in receipt of a means tested Commonwealth income support payment or be able to demonstrate financial hardship.
The scholarship holder must normally remain enrolled full-time. The scholarship is awarded for one year of full-time study (36 units) subject to the scholarship holder maintaining their enrolment, and satisfactory academic performance. A full-time student will receive payment in instalments, one at the beginning of each semester. Part-time scholarships will only be available in extenuating circumstances and a part-time student will receive a pro-rata payment at the beginning of each semester. Scholarship payments will be withdrawn if the scholarship holder withdraws or is precluded from the course, and will not be available for a repeat year of study.
