Equity scholarships are awarded to help disadvantaged undergraduate students with costs associated with higher education.

Scholarships on offer

Priority of offer

Students who receive Parenting Payment, Disability Payment and Carer Payment are encouraged to apply. Scholarships are assessed based on degree of disadvantage and will be prioritised for offer in this way.

Students who are eligible for ongoing Start-Up and Relocation Scholarship payments via Centrelink (see below) will not be eligible for Equity Scholarships.

How to apply

Applications are made through the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC). From August 2016, UAC is offering year-round Equity Scholarships meaning you can apply for Equity Scholarships from August until July the following year.
