SCHOLARSHIPS, FELLOWSHIPS, PRIZES AND BURSARIES

Whether you're studying, or intending to study in Australia, there are lots of options to help pay your way. It's not always necessary to be an A grade student, as some scholarships are for students with particular talents, with disabilities, or from disadvantaged or ethnic backgrounds. There is also assistance for students coming from specific locations, either within Australia or overseas.

To help you find your way around the 1,743 scholarships and fellowships in this database, they are organised into categories:

Secondary
Undergraduate
Postgraduate
Foreign Students

Secondary

  • Scholarships for high school students are offered by schools, education departments, local governments, universities, community groups and professional associations.
  • To find them, select secondary (education) from the keyword list on the search page (subscribers only) or see a sample with a free search.

  • Funds for undergraduate study are organised mainly by subject. To find them, select your subject and undergraduate from the keyword list and press Search. It's not necessary to use the word scholarship in your search.
  • Many scholarships are offered for study in any subject. To see them, select undergraduate and unrestricted (any subject) from the keyword list.
  • A number of other scholarships are offered for undergraduate students who meet certain criteria.
  • To target scholarships in a particular State or Territory, select undergraduate from the keyword list and your State from the Location box, but remember this will exclude scholarships with no geographical restrictions. Relevant scholarships can be further targeted by adding your subject area to the search terms.

Foreign Students

The Australian government has established a scholarships database for foreign students at Study In Australia. The website also has extensive information about courses and student visas. While there are many scholarship opportunities for high school and postgraduate study, very few are offered at undergraduate level unless the student is already studying at an Australian institution.
