Targeted Scholarship Emails

The Scholarships department have sent 60,172 emails inviting students to apply for a scholarship or bursary, based on eligibility requirements they may meet. These emails provided students with information regarding specific scholarships available to them, web links for ease of access to further information, and confirmed the application closing date.

Incomplete Scholarship and Bursary Application Reminders

Scholarships have sent reminder emails to all students who had started an online application, but had yet to upload it. This has prompted students to finalise specific queries, and encouraged them to complete their application before the closing date of 8 March 2015.

The closing date for most scholarships and bursaries is fast approaching. The majority of applications must be submitted online before midnight on Sunday 8 March in order to be assessed.

The exceptions to this closing date are:

ACU Equity Bursaries 19 July 2015

Scholarship Rules Template

The Scholarships department are currently reviewing the Scholarships and Bursaries rules. This is to ensure that applicants have a better understanding of award values, eligibility requirements and selection criteria. We hope this process will clarify information and encourage students to apply for current and future awards with ease.

ISS Applications

Applications for the International Student Scholarship will open on 1 March 2015. This scholarship is available to commencing International postgraduate and undergraduate students, with an outstanding academic merit of at least an average result of 80% in prior studies. Applications will close 31 March 2015.

$1,000 Business Scholarship

Please direct any enquiries regarding the $1,000 Business Scholarship to Rodney Toombes, Faculty Executive Officer.

External Scholarships and Bursaries Browser

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.

ACU Academic Excellence Scholarship

The ACU Academic Excellence Scholarship opened for applications in December and applications continue to flood in. It is open to all Australian citizens and permanent residents who are studying full time at ACU on any campus and in any undergraduate course. Students must have completed their first year and have a GPA of at least 6.0.

Until last week, applicants did not need to upload any documentation with their applications. This was confusing many students. We have adjusted the application form so that all applicants must upload their academic transcript from this point on.

Please visit the Scholarships and Bursaries Browser to apply.
