Scholarships and financial support

Books, fees, living expenses – costs can be a factor when considering study. But it shouldn’t stop you from pursuing your goals.

Luckily, we offer a range of scholarships to commencing and continuing students recognising everything from rewarding academic achievement to supporting equality. And with nearly 400 scholarships on offer, and the opportunity to apply for as many as you like, it pays to check your eligibility.

Who can apply?

The scholarships available to you may depend on the following factors:

  • your campus
  • your year level
  • your faculty
  • merit (e.g. academic achievement or community engagement)
  • if you are from a rural or regional area
  • if you are experiencing financial hardship.

If you meet the eligibility criteria for multiple scholarships or bursaries, there is no restriction on the number of applications you can submit.

When can I apply?

We offer two main application periods for scholarships and bursaries, leading up to Semester 1 and Semester 2 each year.

Please check the Scholarships and Bursaries Browser regularly for updates.
