Scholarships funded by our community reward and assist deserving first and second year students.

With your help, we can grow our scholarship fund. You can ensure our existing scholarships keep pace with inflation and enable us to offer more. 

BM's Discretionary Fund

This fund enables BM to help a student in need: unable to afford an essential piece of equipment for study, or the cost of travel to take part in a competition, or for an emergency trip home.  A substantial gift could allow a student to stay on for a second year. 

You, the donor, may have a personal connection with the student, if appropriate, and you and the student both agree to the arrangement.

Returner Scholarships

Returner Academic Scholarships and Leadership Awards

The following scholarships are available for UC students in their second year at College House:

  • Lyall Holmes Memorial Scholarship, for a student enrolled in an engineering course at UC.

  • Buller & Reay Scholarship, for students enrolled in any course at UC, but usually awarded to arts, and visual and performing arts students.

  • Rowley Scholarship, for a student enrolled in any course at UC, but usually awarded to science and commerce students.

  • Mary Olif Davey Scholarship, for students studying zoology, botany, biology, chemistry or biochemistry.

These scholarships are awarded on the basis of first year examination results and so a copy of your results must accompany your application. As a guide, in previous years successful students have had an A+/A average.

These scholarships are fee rebates and are not awarded as cash amounts. Applications must be received by end of January.
