Domestic scholarships

We offer a range of scholarships across all areas of study. You can even apply for multiple scholarships in one easy application.

A range of scholarships as unique as you.

Scholarships can make a big difference to your university experience and set you on the pathway to success.

We have a range of opportunities for students from all backgrounds.

Whether you’re looking for financial support or relocation assistance, experiencing educational disadvantage or seeking recognition of academic or sporting achievement, we have a scholarship for you.

International students completing years 11 and 12 onshore in Australia can also apply for the same scholarships available to domestic students, so long as they meet the eligibility requirements.

External scholarships

The majority of the funding for our scholarships and bursaries is provided by donations made through the University of Tasmania Advancement Office. There are also scholarships offered by generous organisations outside the University. In some cases, you may receive both a University of Tasmania scholarship and an external scholarship.

You may also wish to consider a number of prestigious scholarships that support exceptional Australian scholars to undertake international postgraduate study.
