University of Adelaide Scholarships for International Students

Ads By:
The University of Adelaide offers a scholarships scheme for international students undertaking undergraduate study.

Scholarships for all International Students
The Adelaide Outstanding Achiever Scholarships International (AOASI)

* Up to nine Adelaide Outstanding Achiever Scholarships International (AOASI) are available to international students from any country undertaking study in any academic discipline except Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) and Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS).

* Benefits are the waiver of full tuition fees for the normal duration of the program, subject to satisfactory performance.
* A scholarship recipient completing a three year degree program who is offered a further year in the Honours Program may apply for an extension of the scholarship to cover that year.
* Scholarships are available only for the first four years of a double degree.

Applications
For students seeking scholarships for study commencing in 2010, a separate application process for scholarships will be required. This includes for applications submitted through the South Australian Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC).

The process will require completion of a web-based form that will be available on this website by mid-September 2009. Applicants will be required to have already received a current offer of admission to the University of Adelaide to be considered for a scholarship.

For further information about international undergraduate scholarships and programs, please contact one of the University of Adelaide’s International Representatives.

Application Deadlines
The deadline for the 2010 round of undergraduate scholarships has yet to be fixed. Please remember that to be considered for a scholarship for 2010 entry, you must have an offer from the University of Adelaide for entry into an academic program for 2010 at the time of application for the scholarship. It is therefore recommended that you apply to study at the University some time before the estimated mid-September opening of the scholarship round.

Bayer Young Environmental Envoy Scholarships

Be a Bayer Young Environmental Envoy
If you are an Indonesian citizen, between 18 to 24 years old, single, and presently enrolled in a college/university, and with a passion for the environment, take up the challenge to become a Bayer Young Environmental Envoy!

Eligibility for Entry

* Indonesian citizen, College/University student enrolled in any institution as of April 1, 2009 (students graduating in April 2009 are eligible to join)
* 18 to 24 years old by September 1, 2009
* Actively involved in environmental activities or projects

* Employees of Bayer, their agencies or independent contractors engaged in the project
* Individuals or companies engaged in the development, production, or distribution of materials for the project

How to join
Financial crises and economic downturns spell tough times for the environment. Safeguarding the planet at a time of economic recession is often seen as a luxury, and at times, a burden on economic recovery and development. On the other hand, reality has shown that the Earth itself is what ultimately controls economic activity because it is the source of the materials upon which economic activity works..

Write your individual proposal, therefore, for a simple environmental project in your community or school which demonstrates that environmental protection and economic growth can go hand in hand.

* In no more than 100 words, describe the current situation and environmentrelated problems in your local area or school.
* Name a few practical solutions to the problem that either government/industry/NGOs or your school/community has so far carried out.
* Draw up a personal project you intend to do to help alleviate this problem, and state your objectives and deliverables.
* Indicate resource requirements like budget, manpower, facilities, as well as institutions/groups involved, making sure that all necessary resources are within your reach. Compare resources and costs with the benefits you expect to gain.
* In no more than 200 words, tell how this project can be beneficial for both the economy and the environment. Explain also why your environmental project makes economic sense.

All projects entered in this competition must begin no earlier than May 29, 2009 and end no later than August 20, 2009.
Procedures/rules

* Fill up the entry form and attach a 4×6 cm color photo of yourself.
* Attach the following documents: certificate of cumulative GPA (IPK, minimum 2.5) from your institution, copies of identification card (KTP/SIM), and proof of environmental award (if there is any) received.
* All entries must be accompanied by a project proposal. Incomplete application form and entry requirements will not be processed.
* Secure the endorsement of a faculty member OR the school academic department head OR college/university dean OR academic vice-president OR president.
* All applications should reach Bayer by May 29, 2009..
* Project proposals must be written in English and double-spaced.. Handwritten or e-mail entries will not be accepted.
* Project proposals, which are adaptations/upgrades of already existing projects are acceptable, but the entry will be judged solely on the basis of new elements introduced and their added value. Pre-existing work or accomplishments prior to the official start-up date will not be given any credit.
* Successful finalists shall be asked to begin implementing their respective projects by June 27, 2009. A premature start-up of the proposed project will be grounds for disqualification.
* While the project proposal should be the applicant’s own concept, the project itself may be carried out by any number of people, with the applicant taking significant role in its implementation.
* The project must be completed or come close to completion by September 30, 2009.
* The judges’ decision is final for all aspects of the competition.
