Scholarships and financial assistance

ANU equity programs aim to make tertiary education accessible to all eligible students, regardless of their background. 


Equity Scholarships

Equity Scholarships (ES) assist disadvantaged students with the general costs associated with tertiary study. ES are awarded to students from low socio-economic backgrounds, particularly those who receive Centrelink income support payments such as ABSTUDY, Austudy, Youth Allowance, Newstart Allowance, Disability Support Pension, Parenting Payment (Single) or the Carer Payment.

ANU offers a number of Equity Scholarships (ES) which are open to all eligible applicants applying to or currently enrolled at ANU.
