Scholarships and Bursaries Application Closing Date

The period for applying for many ACU Scholarships and Bursaries closed on Sunday 8 March at midnight. As usual, there was a last minute influx of applications and the huge task of assessing has begun.

Many students are asking when they will be advised of the outcome of their applications. We will endeavour to notify all applicants (successful, unsuccessful, and ineligible) of the outcome of their applications by late April, via their ACU student email accounts.

The few scholarships still open for application are:

ACU National Student Association – Student Travel and Training Scholarship (STTS)
