Equity Scholarships applications for 2016–17 open on Wed 3 Aug 2016.

Information about 2016–17 admissions will be available on this website from the end of July.
Current information applies only to 2015–16 admissions.

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

Equity Scholarships through UAC comprise:

  • Indigenous Commonwealth Scholarships funded by the Australian Government.
  • Institution Equity Scholarships (IES) funded by individual universities. Some IES are funded by donations or sponsorship.

You can apply for an Equity Scholarship through UAC if you're a currently enrolled student, or hope to receive an offer of admission in 2015–16 to one or more of our participating institutions. Applications remain open from August until July the following year.

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.

Before you apply, download the 2015–16 Equity Scholarships booklet for information about the types of scholarships available at each institution and the eligibility criteria.

Final applications close Tue 12 July 2016.
You can only submit one application to Equity Scholarships for 2015–16 admissions.
