Scholarships and Bursaries

Welcome to the University of Tasmania Scholarships program

Main application period - Applications for most awards commencing in Semester 1 open at the beginning of August and close strictly on 31 October in the year prior.  (An exception to this is scholarships for continuing engineering students, which open in May and close on 30 June in the year prior.)

Mid-year applications - Applications for payment commencing in Semester 2 open in May and close on 30 June each year.  MID-YEAR APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN.  There are more than 50 scholarships and bursaries available and we encourage all University of Tasmania students to browse the awards on offer and apply if eligible.  Applications close strictly on 30 June 2016.  We look forward to receiving your application.

Application status - To check the status of any award available through our program throughout the year, go to our 'A-Z Listing' (web link below).  Please note that awards which close on 31 October will remain on our website until applications re-open in the following August in order to promote our generous donors.

From Semester 1, 2016, the University of Tasmania is proud to offer a new suite of scholarships available to high achievers.  Click here for more information on these scholarships.

The majority of the funding for our scholarships and bursaries is provided by donations made through the University of Tasmania Foundation.  Please note that not all scholarships are administered by our program.  It may be worthwhile checking with your course coordinator or, for information on some external scholarships, click on other scholarships.
