Henderson Country Student Entry Scholarship
The Ben Henderson Country Student Scholarships were specifically created for rural South Australian students attending university in Adelaide and living at Lincoln College.
The Henderson Country Student Entry Scholarship requires the recipient to meet the financial need criterion (a hurdle criterion), whilst exemplifying the notion of “good character”, academic competency and contribution to community life. Benefactor Ben Henderson's intention was to give others a chance to succeed and to “do good” in the world.
‘It’s been really helpful financially. It takes the stress away because it’s meant that I don’t have to worry about Centrelink taking forever, I have the support here and now from the scholarship. It’s made me feel less pressure to get a job so I can focus on my studies”, Kienan McKay, Henderson Scholarship recipient.
