Scholarship Details

 Provider Name:  University of Technology, Sydney

 Scholarship Name:  Eric Dreikurs Scholarship

 Description:  The Eric Dreikurs Scholarship is a one-year grant awarded to a continuing Bachelor of Laws student. Eric Dreikurs (1911-2003) was born in Vienna and settled in Australia in 1938. As a successful businessman, he was able to generously support many charitable causes during his lifetime. He was particularly keen to help young people get 'a good start in life' and many of his charitable donations reflected this. His family ties to a member of the staff of the Faculty of Law led him to appreciate that there were many young law students at UTS who were experiencing financial hardship. Shortly before his death, he made a donation to establish this scholarship in support of such students.
