Alan Robson

The Award recognises and celebrates the strong commitment to teaching and learning of our former Vice Chancellor, Alan Robson.

The award acknowledges Professor Robsonā€™s own rural school experiences and honours the rural teaching career of his father.

The Graduate School of Education offers $1,000 each year to one student participating in a rural teaching practicum. This is to be spent on expenses incurred in undertaking the practicum.

The successful applicant, who must show that they would not be able to consider a rural practicum without the scholarship, will gain long term benefit from a rural teaching practicum.


To be eligible to apply for a scholarship an applicant must :

  1. be a citizen or permanent resident of Australia; and
  2. be enrolled in ā€“
  3. be enrolled or eligible to enrol for 2018 in EDUC5500; and
  4. not hold another rural scholarship; and
  5. be enrolled full-time unless the selection committee is satisfied that there are exceptional circumstances which preclude full-time enrolment.

The Award will be presented at the Graduate School of Education Prize Giving Ceremony.

Please be aware that:

  • the Award is granted annually
  • the Award is not granted to the same person twice, and
  • if the Award lapses or is not granted for any reason the unused money is returned to the School funds for distribution in the future.
