Indigenous Scholarships coming soon

29 Nov 19

We’re proud to announce that our Indigenous Scholarship Program will return for 2020.

A total of $40,000 will be available to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students studying at any university in 2020.

The program is designed to help students with the costs of study, including course fees, accommodation costs and textbooks.

While the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students enrolling in university is growing, they are more than twice as likely to leave university in their first year compared to other domestic students. Among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who had seriously considered leaving university, financial difficulty was the most commonly reported reason. Providing financial assistance to Indigenous students is an important way to grow the number of Indigenous graduates.

Applications will open 2 December 2019 and will close on 28 January 2020. More information, including eligibility, key dates, and FAQs will soon be available on our website. You can sign up for program updates by clicking here.
