  • Mid-year applications - Applications for payment commencing in Semester 2 open in early May and close strictly on 30 June each year. Current engineering students should also apply in this round.

Please note that, in order to promote our generous donors, awards which close on 31 October will remain on our website until applications re-open in the following August.

For high achievers, the University of Tasmania is pleased to offer a new suite of Outstanding Academic Achievement Scholarships.

The majority of the funding for our scholarships and bursaries is provided by donations made through the University of Tasmania Foundation.
