News in Brief

Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships appeal

After only one month, generous donors have already given more than $25,000 to support students at the University of Adelaide through the Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships Fund.

The appeal asks alumni and the wider community to help ease the financial pressures faced by undergraduate students, particularly those who move from rural or remote areas in order to begin their studies.

"All too often, worthy students are faced with financial barriers to study, from rising living expenses to the cost of course materials and fees," said University of Adelaide Vice-Chancellor and President Professor James McWha.

"It is through the generosity of donors that the scholarships are able to help students begin their studies and achieve all that they can during their time at the University of Adelaide."

The Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships are entirely funded by the public, so every donation makes a difference.

Marketing excellence rewarded

The University of Adelaide has for the second year running dominated awards for marketing excellence in South Australia.

The University won three of the 2007 State awards run by the Australian Marketing Institute (AMI) in the categories of Social Marketing, Marketing Communications, and Multimedia and Interactive.

The University won the awards for its Life Impact on Campus campaign and for the marketing of its 2006 Open Day.

The 2007 awards follow similar success in 2006, with awards in that year in the categories of Corporate Social Responsibility, Education, and Social Marketing.

The 2006 Open Day, adopting for the first time the slogan Living Life Impact, was recognised for its success in broadening the event's appeal to a wider community through an expanded range of popular community-based events.
