Scholarships and Bursaries

Welcome to University of Tasmania Scholarships

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, mainly for honours students, domestic students travelling overseas, and for the Indigenous Commonwealth Scholarships (subject to availability of funding). Applications for these awards open in May and close on 30 June each year.

Online applications for most awards commencing in Semester 1, 2015 are now closed.  To check the status of any award available through our program, go to the A-Z Listing (weblink below).  Applications for Semester 2 commencement will open in early May.

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.
