These scholarships were first offered in 2004 and are supported by the family of the late Gregory and Dolores Farrell. Gregory Patrick Farrell OAM was a founding Director of the SpineCare Foundation. The scholarships are available to students who use a wheelchair for mobility, who are undertaking an undergraduate or higher degree, and for those who will be pursuing post-graduate study overseas.
In 2015, four scholarships of up to $5,000 each will be offered to students in New South Wales who use a wheelchair for mobility and are attending university.
Application form and recipient guidelines can be found at https://www.northcott.com.au/tertiary-scholarships. If you require any further information, please contact Deanna Mooney on: email@example.com or 9890 0959.]]>

Just a quick reminder that lectures end on Friday for the Christmas break and recommence on January 5. The official UNE shutdown period runs from COB Christmas eve (although the VC has traditionally given staff from lunchtime onwards off on Christmas eve so factor that in) through until Friday Jan 2.
The Student Support Team will be on deck until midday on Christmas eve and back on Jan 2 – have a great break!

Here’s the full spiel from the website: “As part of UNE’s agreement with Microsoft, students are able to download and use (free of charge) Microsoft Office ProPlus on up to 5 devices (Mac, Windows, iPad, Android) while being an enrolled student at UNE. The ProPlus version are FULL versions of the product and are available for offline use, which means they are installed on your computer and can be used even when you are not connected to the internet. However, you must connect your computer to the internet at least every 30 days to verify that you are still eligible to use the software.
