LEARNING BEYOND LECTURES The University of Newcastle Industry Scholarship Scheme (UNISS) is providing students with financial assistance while they study and gain workplace experience. UNISS is a partnership among the University of Newcastle, the student and an industry sponsor. UNISS scholars are supported financially and given opportunities to make significant contributions to the workplace, while experiencing the culture and ethics of a professional role. In 2011 there are over 135 scholars in the program, supported by a diverse range of industry sponsors. A scholarship can be established in any area of study. UNISS Manager Angela Samuels said industry sponsorship meant students were professionally nurtured and given the opportunity to shine in their chosen fields. ‘For many, the scholarships give their studies a true focus. ‘The work placements let them experience what the industry is like day-to-day, so they can hone their subject choices and shape their careers very early on,’ she said.
