GSF announces two more bursaries for 2021

Canberra, 1 December 2020:  The Gallipoli Scholarship Fund is excited to announce two new Bursaries to assist students in their first year of tertiary study either at university or TAFE (the latter at Degree, Diploma or Advanced Diploma level) in 2021

 The Gallipoli Scholarship is open to direct descendants of Australian and, from 2021, New Zealand veterans, who meet the selection criteria. The two new Bursaries – valued at $6,000 each – will be sponsored by the Hall Rotary Club in Canberra and Ernst & Young (EY) global business and accountancy firm.  These Bursaries are welcome additions to existing scholarships and bursaries to be offered in 2021 – including the Calleo Indigenous Bursary being offered for the first time to a direct descendant of an Australian indigenous serviceman or service woman.

The Hall Rotary Club (HRC) Bursary will be offered to a first-year student preferably engaged in tertiary studies related to agriculture, with priority being given to candidates from the ACT/NSW region.  The Bursary will be for one first year tertiary scholar for the next three years, with an opportunity to extend Bursary.

Also commencing in 2021, the GSF will award the EY Bursary to a first-year student engaged in tertiary studies related to EY’s core activities, such as business, economics or finance. EY will provide internship to the selected scholar, and if the scholar proves worthy, EY will continue to provide funding for subsequent years of the degree.  The Bursary will be awarded to one new scholar per year for five years, also with an opportunity to extend.

Due to changed university course offering procedures as a result of Covid-19, applications for the Gallipoli Scholarship in 2021 will now close on 1st March.

I hope that this inaugural award can become a longstanding opportunity for future Gallipoli scholars, offering them the same connections that I have now been afforded,” he said. “In the end, the most important thing to me is that I am engaged with what I do and that I feel I am making a significant change in the world, so I am extremely grateful to be recognised by a company that operates so widely within the international STEM community.”
