PBSA ANU Partnership - Spotless Scholarship


There are up to two awards available each year known as the ANU PBSA Partnership - Spotless Scholarship to support ANU students undertaking a research project in Sustainability, Facilities Management, Asset Management or a related field.

Funding for this award has been provided by Spotless under the PBSA ANU Partnership. Spotless is an Australian listed company that provides Integrated Facilities Management Services. In December 2016 Spotless entered into a 30 year partnership with HRL Morrison and Co and the ANU to manage on campus Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA).

The award is available each year to a prospective or continuing ANU student who is:

Selection is made on the basis of academic merit and the relevance of the proposal to contribute to the relevant fields of study (i.e. Sustainability, Facilities Management, Asset Management or related fields). The successful proposal will provide a relevant contribution to improve the efficiency or performance of the built environment at the ANU.
