The Olive Battersby Scholarship

Olive Battersby dedicated nearly forty years of her life (1948-1987) to the School/Faculty of Education at The University of Melbourne.

She started as an Assistant to the Dean, Professor Browne, and then through her librarianship studies became the Faculty/School librarian. Her family has established the Olive Battersby Scholarship in her memory.

The Olive Battersby Scholarship is awarded annually to a student taking the Master of Teaching program (domestic or international students, any stream*). It is awarded on the basis of academic merit and financial need. The recipient will receive approximately $8,000 towards the cost of tuition and other expenses.

Students will be notified about the application process via the Melbourne Graduate School of Education Student Newsletter. All current Master of Teaching students are automatically subscribed to the newsletter.

*Previous recipients of this award and students completing their final 50 points of study in the Early Childhood or Secondary streams are not eligible to apply.
