ACU Equity Bursaries - Commencing Students

ACU awards 22 ACU Equity Bursaries to commencing students each year.  These bursaries are intended to financially assist students from low socio-economic backgrounds and are a one-off payment of $2,000.

Applicants must:

  • be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident of Australia
  • be enrolled as a Commonwealth supported student
  • be a commencing student
  • must not have completed the requirements of a course of study equivalent to or higher than an Australian bachelors award unless such an award is a prerequisite to your current course of study
  • demonstrate financial hardship and
  • be enrolled, or about to commence study as a full time student (exceptional circumstances may be considered for part-time study).
