Equity Scholarships (ES)

Applications for 2013–14 admissions have closed.

Applications for 2014–15 admissions will open in early August.

What are Equity Scholarships?

Equity Scholarships assist financially disadvantaged students with the costs associated with higher education.

You can apply for an Equity Scholarship if you're a currently enrolled student, or expect to receive an offer of admission in 2014 to one or more of the participating institutions.

Equity Scholarships through UAC comprise:

  • Commonwealth Scholarships (CS) for Indigenous students; established and funded by the Australian Government.
  • Institution Equity Scholarships (IES) funded by individual universities. Some IES are funded by donations or sponsorship.

Download the 2014 Equity Scholarships booklet for  information about the types of scholarships available at each institution and the eligibility criteria, before you apply.

By submitting just one application through UAC you’ll be considered for all available Equity Scholarships for which you’re eligible at the participating institutions.
