Bobbie Fenner Scholarship


Each year, the Australian National University may offer an award known as the Bobbie Fenner Scholarship. 

The objective is to provide support to a student from a remote or regional background who chooses to reside in Fenner Hall. 

Funding has been provided by Frank Fenner in memory of his wife Bobbie Fenner, both whom are now deceased.

Field of study



The Award is available each year to a commencing ANU student who: 

  • is a domestic student; and
  • receives an offer of admission to an undergraduate program offered by the University; and
  • has received and accepted or will accept an offer to reside in Fenner Hall; and
  • is eligible for and receives adjustment factors for financial hardship; and
  • at the time of application to the University, resides in a Very Remote, Remote, Outer Regional or Inner Regional area as determined by the geographical classification defined by the Australian Statistical Geography Standard - ASGS 2016.


The scholarship provides a stipend of $9,000 per annum for up to 3 years. The scholarship is paid at the beginning of each semester. Recipients must reside in Fenner Hall to receive the scholarship.

How to apply

All applicants applying for admission to ANU through the direct Admission Scholarship and Accommodation Application will be automatically considered for the award, based on them meeting the eligibility criteria and electing to be considered for scholarships.

When you apply directly to ANU for admission as a domestic undergraduate student, you will have the opportunity to be considered for this opportunity within the same application. Other such support options are enlisted on the Direct application scholarships page.
