Every three to five years the ANU College of Business and Economics may offer an award known as the Bhavita Patel Undergraduate Scholarship.
The Bhavita Patel Scholarship is a transformative scholarship established to commemorate ANU alumna and treasured Deloitte employee, Bhavita Patel.
Bhavita died in January 2017 after an incident in Melbourne's CBD. She had a passion for learning and a deep commitment to the community. Thus, The Deloitte Foundation, in consultation with Bhavita's family, agreed that a scholarship at ANU, where Bhavita studied business before embarking on her successful career, would best honour her.
The scholarship aims to:
- improve access to tertiary education for students who may not otherwise be able to attend ANU; and
- recognise and reward academic excellence; and
- recognise and reward students who demonstrate a passion for learning and a commitment to community.
Field of study
The award is available to a prospective ANU student who:
(a) is an Australian citizen, New Zealand citizen, holder of an Australian Permanent Resident visa or a permanent humanitarian visa;
(b) is a current school leaver, aged 20 years or younger at the time of application;
(c) receives an offer of admission and will enrol in an undergraduate coursework program offered by the College; and
(d) is eligible for National Access Scheme (NAS) financial hardship adjustment factors (as demonstrated in your ASA application).
Selection is made on the basis of the applicant's level of financial hardship demonstrated. Academic merit may be considered where two or more candidates are assessed as having the same level of financial hardship.
The scholarship will be valued at $10,000 per annum for up to five years depending upon the duration of the degree program in which the recipient is enrolled.
