The university will invite school principals from South Australian, Northern Territory, Broken Hill and non-metropolitan Victorian schools to nominate candidates for the Principals' Scholarships at the University of Adelaide. School principals will be invited to nominate up to 2 candidates, taking into account the candidates' academic potential as well as their contribution to school life and to the wider community. One scholarship will be available for each school in the nominated regions. The university reserves the right not to award a scholarship to a school if there are no eligible candidates. The offer of a scholarship may not be deferred.
Applicants must: be Australian citizens or permanent residents; qualify for their year 12 certificate at a nominated school; have applied through SATAC for admission to a Commonwealth Supported Place in an undergraduate bachelor degree program at the University of Adelaide; be eligible to receive an offer of a place in that program; be commencing post secondary studies for the first time; and obtain an ATAR (TER) of 80 or greater, after the addition of the university's Fairway Bonus (if applicable). The award of a scholarship is subject to the student's admission to an undergraduate bachelor program, confirmation of full-time enrolment at each of the census dates (31 March and 31 August), and satisfactory academic achievement.
The scholarship is valued at $5,000, payable in 2 equal instalments.
