Indigenous Student Bursary

Duchesne College promotes diversity and equality of access to a College experience. It is recognised that the many of our students come from backgrounds where College fees present a considerable challenge. The College hereby provides a scholarship for an indigenous student who, because of her circumstances, might otherwise be unable to undertake her undergraduate university studies as a Resident of Duchesne College.

 The number of scholarships to be awarded each year (maximum of two) will be determined by the Duchesne College Foundation and the Duchesne College Council.

Eligibility

Applications may be made by any indigenous student who is enrolled for her first year of a full-time undergraduate university degree and has made an application for a place at Duchesne College. Holders of other awards or scholarships are eligible to apply for this Scholarship.

Selection Criteria

The Award will be made on the basis of:
(a) evidence of commitment to the degree/discipline to be undertaken;
(b) willingness to commit to the life and service of Duchesne College;
(c) leadership and personal qualities;
(d) demonstrated financial need.

The Award tenable for one year and is to the value of $6000, granted as a remission of the College annual fee, half the amount of which will be applied at the commencement of each academic semester.
