  • 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, 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.
  • 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 current engineering students, which are open in our mid-year round of May-June in the year prior.) From time to time, applications for some scholarships may be re-opened, or have the closing date extended. If this is the case, those scholarships will be listed above.
  • Mid-year applications - Applications open in early May and close strictly on 30 June each year. This round normally includes scholarships for current students intending to undertake overseas travel in the second half of the year. However, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, we are not accepting applications for overseas travel in the 2020 mid-year round. We are hopeful that applications will be open in our main round of August-October for travel in the first half of 2021.

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 refer to other scholarships and prestigious scholarships.
