Aleksander Varga Memorial Bursary


Funding for the award has been provided by the family to commemorate the life of Aleksander Varga, a diligent and hardworking student who, tragically, was killed in an automobile accident on 7 May, 2021.
An ANU Alumus who graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Engineering in 2015, Aleks was proud of his rural background. His willingness to help others and the value he placed on community together with his work ethic and tenacity positioned him as an 'all-rounder' amongst his family and peers
The objective of the Award is to assist students from a similar background and enable them to study engineering at the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science. Awardees will demonstrate the same hard-working, "all-rounder" qualities and approach to life.  Preference will be given to applicants from region and rural backgrounds, for equity and financial need.
