"These scholarships not only ease the financial burden of university, but provide such tremendous encouragement and motivation to continue working hard at my studies, no matter how difficult circumstances may be... I thank my sponsors for their generosity, continual support and the encouragement they have provided to me and acknowledge that their contributions have a genuine, positive impact on my time and experiences at university. I hope to one day have the opportunity to give back to the community and students that are in my position today."

For UTAS students directly affected by the 2013 Tasmanian bushfires

You may be affected either directly where you live or your means of support such as parents’ work or your own income. The Bursary has been established through donations from UTAS alumni and friends specifically to assist students affected by the 2013 bushfires.

The University of Tasmania is committed to rewarding excellence and improving access to higher education. Our Scholarships Program provides over 900 awards to the value of almost $7 million. The program reflects the tremendous support we receive from individuals, government and business. It provides valuable financial support, while enhancing our students' university experience by providing networking and career opportunities.
The Tasmania Scholarships Program supports the University’s commitment to offer students an exemplary learning environment. The program provides students with significant financial and academic support to study at the University of Tasmania at a time they most need it. Awards are offered in a wide range of disciplines to students studying at undergraduate, honours, and postgraduate levels.
The scholarship supporters are investing in the future of our students and their generosity makes studying a reality and a potential life changing experience. With enrolment numbers increasing each year the need for further scholarships is still a vital one. Scholarships make a difference for students moving to study, for families struggling with a single income, in attracting the brightest Tasmanian students and the most deserving achievers.
Some of the current scholars have provided additional insight into the difference that a scholarship can make.
