  • Scholarships

    Scholarships attract high-calibre students from Australia and abroad. They act as an incentive for students to strive for and achieve excellence in their studies. They also provide support for students who might otherwise be unable to take up a university place or complete their study.

    The University of Adelaide recognises that those who are financially or educationally disadvantaged should not be denied access to quality tertiary education. You may wish to provide a scholarship for a student from a rural or regional community, indigenous, a student in financial need, first generation or a top performing student.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss the possibility of you being involved in assisting financially through sponsorship whether for events or other School projects.

  • Dean of Law's Fund

    The student body now reflects more closely the diverse society which the law serves. With this comes a challenging reality for financially disadvantaged students who, without support, might not be able to attend law school. Professor John Williams, with the support of alumni and the profession developed the fund to assist those students who may be in crisis as a result of straitened financial circumstances. Supporting the Dean of Law's Fund will make an education at the Adelaide Law School a reality for students of all backgrounds and encourage diversity in our profession.

    Please contact Luke Van Trigt, Alumni Relations Officer (Faculty of Professions), for further information.

  • Prizes

    Prizes award students who have demonstrated excellence in their academic courses. Prizes are awarded in a variety of amounts, however we respectfully ask that they be a minimum amount of $500 to ensure they have a significant impact on the student.

    We can help you decide where your financial support is best directed to reflect your connection to the School and industry. Please contact the School on +61 8 8313 5063 or email for further information.
