student Scholarships

We believe that supporting our students is a great investment.

Regardless of whether you are a domestic or international student, or studying at an undergraduate or postgraduate level, there are a range of scholarships available.

Scholarships are not just for the highest achievers but for many students, in a range of situations.

Scholarships range from large awards that will help cover your tuition fees, to smaller stipends that are designed to simply take the sting out of paying for your accommodation or text books.

You can find further details and check your eligibility on the ANU Scholarships database and keep an eye on the CECS Student Opportunities Newsletter for upcoming scholarship rounds.

Applying is easy and it will only take a few moments to explore the options that are available to you.
