The Advanced Focus Scholarship in Engineering was established in 2015. The scholarship recognises and supports rural and remote students enrolled in Engineering at Flinders University. Recipients of the scholarship will receive $1250 annually for up to 4 years.
Source of funds
The scholarship has been established through the generous support of Advanced Focus, a leading Australian-owned process solutions specialist that provides consulting, training and engineering services that deliver 'game-changing' results for its customers. Advanced Focus is committed to the industry and offer scholarship recipients networking opportunities to broaden their professional knowledge and experience.
Applicants for the scholarship must be:
an Australian citizen; and
normally reside outside of the Adelaide metropolitan area and the metropolitan areas of other major Australian cities (based on the ASGC Remote Awareness Classification); and
normally remain enrolled full-time in an undergraduate Engineering degree leading towards a Flinders University qualification.*
*Students enrolled in an Engineering award that is a pathway to a qualification from another institution (e.g. Bachelor of Engineering (Maritime)(Honours)) will not be eligible.
Tenure and benefits
The scholarship is offered annually and recipients will receive $1250 per year for the duration of the course (up to 4 years), paid in equal instalments after the census date of each semester.
The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit. If applicants have equal academic merit, the remoteness of their home address may be taken into consideration. Preference will be given, in the first instance, to commencing students. Selection will be made in accordance with approved University procedures.
Applications should be submitted online through the Flinders University Student System by the specified closing date.
The scholarship will be advertised on the University website and other appropriate media as determined by Flinders University.
