Friends of the University of Newcastle Scholarship for Studies in Education

The Friends of the University were established in 1981 to foster an awareness of the University and its place in the community and to conduct activities including fundraising that promote the interests of the University. Since that time the Friends have raised over $1,000,000 and contributed towards scholarships, art works, music, rare books, infrastructure and more. This Teaching Scholarship is to be awarded annually for an indigenous student studying an education degree.
