Business Scholars Program

The Faculty of Business and Law is expanding its scholarships program to include all business degrees. The new Business Scholars Program (BSP) is open to students of Commerce, Information Systems, Management, Property and Real Estate, Sport Management and Sport Development to recognise, reward and nurture high achieving students admitted to a business degree in the Faculty of Business and Law.

Each scholarship is worth $2800 per annum, paid half yearly. You must be enrolled full-time and maintain a high level of academic achievement.

You may select any undergraduate business course (excluding Law). Applicants may enroll in a combined course offered with another Faculty e.g.. Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Commerce, however the scholarship will only apply to the Faculty of Business component of the combined course.
