About the Scholarship Sponsor:
The New South Wales Institute of Technology was founded in 1964, which is where the seed for what is now known as the University of Technology in Sydney (UTS) was planted. On January 25th, 1988, the institute completed the purchase of the School of Design at the Sydney College of the Arts. UTS was originally known as the University of Technology, Sydney, until the University of Technology, Sydney Act was approved on January 26, 1988. The present-day University of Technology and Sydney was established on January 1, 1990, when the Kuring-Gai College of Advanced Education and the Institute of Technical and Adult Teacher Education amalgamated with UTS to create a single institution. At the moment, the state-funded research institution is a participant in the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), the Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higher Learning (ASAIHL), and the Australian Technology Network (ATN).
