Staff are asked to direct any scholarship questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, to ensure a timely response.
The ‘My Scholarships’ tab is a central space for students to access and manage their scholarship details.
Students can utilise the ‘My Scholarships’ tab via Student Connect, to access a variety of information and tools.
The tab allows students to:
- Accept or Reject a Scholarship Offer
- View an online ‘Scholarship Summary’ which outlines all scholarship payments made
- Access a ‘Scholarship Confirmation Letter’ to advise Centrelink of payments
- Provide documents for consideration of special circumstances, via a web link
- Upload a Letter of Appreciation/Annual Report, if required
- Update/insert bank account details.
The Scholarships Office will be performing checks to confirm that all students who have been made a conditional scholarship offer, remain eligible. These checks will begin shortly after Census Date, 31 August 2015.
Students who have been made an offer, and have been confirmed as meeting the eligibility requirements of the Scholarship after the Semester 2 census date (31 August 2015) will receive their payment within 6 weeks AFTER this date.
The Scholarships Office will also advise students, via email, when their payment has been processed.

Please remember that a number of external organisations also offer scholarship and bursary opportunities to tertiary students. These awards are promoted to students via the External Scholarships and Bursaries page; the Scholarships Office encourages all students to view the browser, especially those who may not be eligible for an internal scholarship or bursary.
