The Stuart Barton Babbage Fellowship
The Stuart Barton Babbage Fellowship is available for residents undertaking a doctorate or who are undertaking postdoctoral work. This Fellowship has been created to support the scholarship of an outstanding man or woman who is pursuing doctoral studies or post-doctoral research at UNSW. It is named in honour of the late Rev Dr Canon Stuart Barton Babbage, AM, who was the second Master of New College.
New College aims to build character in each individual who becomes part of the New College Village community. We encourage residents to seek academic excellence, serve one another and make contributions to the wider community. The College offers the award to: support the growth and development of a promising scholar; gain benefit from the involvement of the fellow in the life of the NCV; strengthen the academic culture of the NCV through the work of the fellow and his/her support of, or involvement with younger residents; enrich the NCV community in accordance with its stated Mission.
The expectation is that the fellow would reside in the New College Village community for at least 48 weeks and take part in the life of the NCV. The fellow would be expected to make varied contributions to the life of the NCV including speaking at College functions, informal tutorial support and involvement in NCV activities. A variety of scholarships are available for students looking to do postgraduate studies at UNSW. They are available through the university, at faculty-level and through other government and research institutes.
Bible Society Young Scholars
The purpose of the Bible Society Young Scholars program is to promote Christian scholarship amongst those living at New College and NCV while they study at UNSW, Australia.
Each scholarship is for an initial period of 1 year. It will include a reduction of $2000 in accommodation fees at New College or NCV, mentoring by New College and Bible Society staff as well as resource and conference support to assist the student to complete agreed research tasks. The scholarship may be extended for subsequent years, subject to ongoing scholar performance and available funding.
