Liverpool City Council Opportunity Scholarship

2020 Liverpool City Council Opportunity Scholarship

Community/Equity

Liverpool City Council is committed to supporting local students in need from the Liverpool Local Government Area (https://www.liverpool.nsw.gov.au/council/The-Liverpool-Area/maps-of-liverpool) who are studying at the UOW South Western Sydney campus to achieve their education aspirations.

These three $5000 scholarships, available to SWS students in their first, second or third year of study in 2020, aim to inspire local students to use their acquired expertise to give back to the local region.  These scholarships are for students who have demonstrated need, such as financial or social disadvantage, and recognises those who have been involved in activities which add value to the community. There are a range of criteria that are looked at in determining this need such as low income, family background, living in a rural or isolated region, having a permanent disability, Indigenous Australians, being a recent migrant from a non-English speaking country or if you are a first in family university attendee.

Applicants must provide a one page outline of their involvement in the community, and detail how a scholarship will assist with your career ambitions. 

Applicants must also submit an application via UAC Equity from 01st April to be considered for this scholarship

Open from 17/Mar/2020 to 26/Apr/2020
