As part of Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's commitment to help build stronger communities, it has established a scholarship fund. Each year grants are awarded to academically outstanding but disadvantaged students, usually from a rural or regional area, who have been offered a full-time place at an Australian university or college campus for the first time. The scholarship aims to support first year undergraduate students who, due to social or financial circumstances, would not have been able to further their education.
Applicants must: be Australian citizens or permanent residents; be enrolling in a degree at university for the first time; be current school leavers (or have taken a gap year); demonstrate the disadvantage that is preventing them from taking up the opportunity of further study; be from a rural or regional area and be moving away from the family home in order to undertake tertiary study; be academically outstanding students; and demonstrate extensive community involvement. Selection is based on academic merit and financial disadvantage.
The scholarship contributes approximately $5,000 towards accommodation costs.
