Scholarships and Bursaries

Welcome to the University of Tasmania Scholarships program

Our program runs on a calendar year basis.

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.

There is a very limited round for Semester 2 commencement, with applications opening in May and closing on 30 June each year.

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 open for the next main round.  Funding is confirmed during July each year for applications which open at the beginning of August.

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 available to university students are administered by our program. Click on other scholarships for information on external scholarships.
