In 1915, the South Australian Commercial Travellers' and Warehousemen's Association Incorporated (now called the Sales and Business Development Association SA or SABDA), paid to the University £100 to establish a bursary in memory of Archibald Mackie, a former Secretary of the Association.

Today, the capital funds are invested in the University's Endowment Fund, the income of which supports the Archibald Mackie Prize valued at $300 and awarded annually to a commencing full-time student enrolled in the Bachelor of Economics degree with the highest total marks for the Level 1 core courses in the Bachelor of Economics.
