Scholarships & Awards
Scholarships are an excellent way to finance study and to obtain recognition for your achievements. Prizes and bursaries can also be listed on your curriculum vitae and a track record built that will impress future employers and scholarship givers in the future. It is not always necessary to be an A grade student to receive a scholarship, prize or bursary. Scholarships are offered to students by a wide range of organisations such as community organisations, large and small charities, State, Federal and local governments in addition to tertiary institutions.
Many organisations offer scholarships in a wide variety of categories such as students with disabilities, students in equity groups, students from overseas and students that have demonstrated academic achievement in a particular area of study.
There are four types of scholarships:
- Federal government scholarships
- Education provider scholarships
- Scholarships for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
- Community scholarships
