Student Funding For Formal Study

Whether you're intending to, or already studying 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. Assistance is available for students coming from specific locations, either within Australia or overseas, and for Australian students to pursue a postgraduate degree overseas.

See tips to find your way around the 2,000 or so scholarships, fellowships*, prizes, awards and bursaries in this database for:

Primary & Secondary School
Undergraduates
Postgraduates
Foreign Students

*Fellowships offered for purposes other than formal study (e.g. postdoctoral research, creative development) are not listed as Student (current or future) and Foreign Student Applicant Types, but may be found under Academic/Tertiary Institution, Artist/Arts Organisation, Business/Industry, Medical/Allied Health Professional, Researcher/Research Institution or Other Individuals as applicable.

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.

An exception is the Australia Awards Scholarships, available for citizens of Bangladesh, Bhutan, Botswana, Cambodia, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, French Pacific Collectivities (New Caledonia, French Polynesia, and Wallis and Futuna), Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Kiribati, Laos, Madagascar, Malawi, Maldives, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Mongolia, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nauru, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestinian Territories, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Republic of Palau, Samoa, Solomon Islands, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Timor-Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, Vietnam and Zambia. See the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade web site for further information:

African postgraduate students are eligible for the Australia Awards Africa Fellowships, funding long and short term study for citizens of Botswana, Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Seychelles, Somalia, South Africa, South Sudan, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

'For those who prefer the certainty of hard copy'

Note: the online database is current, with ~70 entries updated every week
The GrantSearch Register of Australian Funding is a printed version of the database. While the database is dynamic and constantly updated, the contents of the book are static and gradually become out of date. Even so, some prefer it to online subscriptions, and continue to find it useful long after its intended lifetime of 18 - 24 months.

A new edition is now in preparation. This is a labour-intensive process which involves checking every detail of the entire database before going to press. It is difficult to predict how long this will take, so please be patient - responding to repeated requests for progress reports only increases the burden of work and leads to further delay.
