In Semester One 2012 the University of Melbourne allocated the following undergraduate scholarships to the Trinity College Foundation Studies students who came through the Trinity iPad Program:
1 X 100% fee waiver
2 X 50% fee waiver
7 X 10% fee waiver
In total 10 TCFS iPad students received scholarships, 24% of the total graduating cohort of the students from the iPad Pilot Program.
The iPad students, who commenced their Trinity studies as August Extended students in 2010 before joining the larger February Main cohort in 2011, comprised 10.3% of the February Main 2011 cohort. The iPad students attracted 40% of the scholarships (10 of the 25) that were offered to the February Main graduating students who began undergraduate study at the University of Melbourne in Semester One 2012.
Since the start of 2012 all TCFS students have been allocated iPads, and it will be interesting to monitor their academic progress throughout this year. Hopefully we can look forward to high levels of academic engagement and achievement for all students and also look forward to future scholarship winners.
