CSU Foundation scholarship ceremony for Bathurst and Orange students


Wednesday, 8 Aug 2018

The Charles Sturt University (CSU) Foundation Scholarship presentation ceremony will be held in Bathurst on Friday 10 August for students who attend the University in Bathurst and Orange.

Director of CSU Advancement Ms Sarah Ansell said the University would award $1.3 million in scholarships to 300 students across the five scholarship ceremonies held in July and August.

The scholarships will be awarded to students studying in Bathurst and Orange across education, health, science, the arts, and criminal justice, reflecting the University’s diverse student community.

Ms Ansell said the scholarships were not only an investment in students but also in regional communities by providing the education and training needed to ensure strong and sustainable communities.

“Scholarships provide access and opportunity for our students, ensuring they receive an education which will in turn allow them to bring knowledge, skills and social capital back to their own communities,” Ms Ansell said.

Ms Ansell noted that the scholarship ceremonies were also a way for the University to recognise the significance of the donors.

“Their scholarships are vital in alleviating some of the barriers to higher education and ensuring students can concentrate on their studies and enjoy an enriching student experience,” Ms Ansell said.

The scholarship presentation ceremony will be at 11.30am on Friday 10 August  at the CD Blake Auditorium (building 1220) at CSU in Bathurst . The ceremony will award scholarships to students attending the University in Bathurst and Orange.
