Equity Scholarships

Equity Scholarships help financially disadvantaged students with general costs associated with tertiary study. They are awarded to students from low socio-economic backgrounds, particularly those who receive Centrelink income support payments. 

Who can apply?

To apply for Equity Scholarships you must be enrolled at a participating institution, or applying for admission:

  • through UAC as an undergraduate or postgraduate – there are only a very limited number of equity scholarships open to international applicants, or
  • directly to an institution, or
  • through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) or the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC).

Educational disadvantages and supporting documents

Most of the educational disadvantages you can claim for require you to provide supporting documents.
