Community/Equity

The Walter and Eliza Hall Trust Opportunity Scholarship for a student with a Physical Disability (Indigenous & Non-Indigenous)  aims to ensure that students who are living with a diagnosed permanent physical disability, and are experiencing financial disadvantage, are supported in reaching their maximum potential and the opportunity to achieve a formal tertiary education. Applicants will be asked to submit a short statement outlining the details of their physical disability diagnosis and how this disability impacts their studies, as well as detailing their involvement in the community.

One of the two scholarships is specifically identified for Indigenous students only.

The preferred use of scholarship funds would be for the purchase of educational equipment and materials (e.g. uniforms, tools required for specific programs, laptops, textbooks, assistive technologies), additional tutoring, transport costs, and other costs related to their educational program. A maximum of $3,000 per scholar may be used for living expenses. Funds are not to be utilised for the payment of HECS debt. overseas travel or supporting family members. Successful recipients will be required to provide a brief report at the end of the academic year, describing how they have used the funds with an outline of expenses.

Applicants must also submit an application via UAC Equity to be considered for this scholarship. Applications will be accepted to UAC Equity up until 18 February 2022.
