University of South Australia

The George Alexander Foundation Regional Scholarship Program at the University of South Australia was established in recognition of the challenges faced by regional students attending university away from home.

The Foundation established its scholarship program at the University of South Australia in 2021. The George Alexander Foundation Regional Scholarship Program was established in recognition of the significant challenges, such as the cost of living expenses, faced by students from regional areas when attending university away from home. 

The program is designed to encourage students from regional areas to enrol in a first-year course at the University of South Australia, and to enable young people from regional areas to realise their full academic and leadership potential.

From 2021 to 2023 three scholarships will be awarded annually, each valued at $24,000 over three years. The scholarships are open to students that can demonstrate examples of personal leadership and contributions to the community, have a history of high academic achievement, and will need to relocate from a regional or remote location to study at the University of South Australia.

Further details on how to apply for the scholarship program can be found on the University of South Australia website.

 "The confidence and backing of The George Alexander Foundation ignited an increased sense of purpose and resolution in my academic endeavour."
