Scholarship stuff you should know
There are some key things you should know about scholarships before you start browsing and applying.
Scholarships are for the passionate
Our scholarships aren’t just for the smart or disadvantaged. We aim to empower passion and ambition. Don’t just give us your grades and a reference – tell us how you’re going to change the world.
Our scholarships come from real people
It’s not just companies or organisations that provide these scholarships to future generations of students like you.
Many of our scholarships come from real people, including past graduates, parents of students and celebrated alumni who are no longer with us.
There are two main scholarship types
Our scholarships fall into two categories:
- Merit scholarships are awarded to students who think big and have excelled in some area.
- Equity scholarships provide support to students who want to overcome the odds, helping them to surmount financial hardship or other disadvantages.
Your achievements are recorded
If you’re awarded a merit scholarship, we will record these details on your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) once you’ve completed your course.
This will boost your academic CV and help you stand out to future employers.
Check your eligibility
It’s important to know that most of our scholarships will have eligibility criteria. Make sure to read these thoroughly before you apply.
Criteria could include:
- Course type
- Campus location
- Citizenship or family background
- Earning a certain ATAR / OP / Rank score
- Financial circumstances
- Year level.
Don’t be discouraged
You should apply for all the scholarships you’re eligible for – some students have received more than one.
