The Gregory & Dolores Farrell Scholarships were first offered in 2004 and are supported by the family of the late Gregory and Dolores Farrell. Gregory Patrick Farrell OAM was a founding Director of the SpineCare Foundation.
The Scholarships are available to students who use a wheelchair for mobility, who are undertaking an undergraduate or higher degree, and for those who will be pursuing post-graduate study overseas.
The aim of the Scholarship is to support integration into tertiary education. It is acknowledged that students with a disability may have additional obstacles to overcome in accessing a tertiary education, particularly the additional costs involved, which can be considerable and variable according to the degree of disability.
Value and duration
In 2017, four Scholarships of up to $5,000 each will be offered to students in New South Wales who use a wheelchair for mobility and are attending university.
Who is eligible?
The Scholarships are only for students who:
- use a wheelchair for mobility; and
- are Australian citizens; and
- have been accepted into a university course in NSW or are currently enrolled in one.
As a condition of the scholarship, it will be necessary for the successful students to submit mid-year and end of year results, as well as a report on how the scholarship funds have been spent. Unallocated funds at the end of the year will need to be returned.
The successful applicants will be chosen by a Selection Committee.
If placed on a shortlist, it may be necessary for applicants to attend an interview in Sydney in mid-February 2017.
Successful applicants will be advised in the first week of March 2017.
Please see theRecipient Guidelines for more information
Funding has been made available for one year only, subject to review for further assistance, but successful applicants may reapply for future years.
Applications for the Gregory Dolores Farrell Scholarship are currently closed.
