Every three to five years the ANU College of Business and Economics may offer an award known as the College of Business and Economics D. Brownbill Family Scholarship.
The objective of the award is to strengthen educational outcomes for students both in terms of skills development and preparation for further study or employment, improve equity access figures for the University, and raise awareness of the acute disadvantages that some students face in accessing university education.
The award is available to a prospective ANU student who:
is an Australian Citizen, Australian Permanent Resident, or Permanent Humanitarian Visa Holder, Bridging Visa E (BVE), Safe Haven Enterprise Visa (SHEV) (subclass 790), or Temporary Protection Visa (subclass 785); and
has gained admission into a single undergraduate coursework program at the College, or a flexible double degree program with one of the programs offered by the College; and
is eligible for Educational Access Scheme (EAS) financial disadvantage bonus points; and
meets the minimum required Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (including any EAS bonus points) for admission to the relevant ANU College of Business and Economics program of study.
The duration of the award will be up to four years, depending on the program in which the recipient is enrolled. The award is valued at $6000 per annum
