The George Alexander Foundation Scholarship Program at University of Wollongong

The George Alexander Foundation Scholarship Program commenced at the University of Wollongong in 2018. The program aims to support high-achieving undergraduate students beginning their first year of study, with a primary focus (though not exclusively) on assisting students relocating from regional and rural areas.

Three scholarships are awarded annually, each valued at $24,000 and paid in instalments during the scholar's degree.

The scholarships are open to students who have received an ATAR or equivalent of 80+ and are commencing the first year of an undergraduate degree at the Wollongong campus. 

All GAF scholarships recognise students who can demonstrate academic merit, community involvement and leadership capability.

Moving away from home has been a big transition. The scholarship has helped by giving me financial security. I can focus on settling in and figuring out a study schedule.
