Scholarship Application Guidelines

2019 Scholarship Application Guidelines

If you wish to apply for a scholarship, your application should reflect who you are and what you have achieved regarding academic, sport or community accomplishments, what you would hope to do with your qualification and how you would give back to the community. This information will help the Scholarship Committee to make an informed decision regarding the best candidates for the scholarships. 

Here are some useful guidelines to help with completing the required information:

    • Make sure you fully understand the information outlined in the Scholarship Handbook and form.   
    • Read the scholarship information and criteria carefully to assess your eligibility and to find out what documentation is needed to accompany the application.
    • The best applicants are those who take time to write and organise their application. Think carefully about what you have written in the application and have it proof-read.
    • It is vital that you complete the form correctly and attach all supporting documentation required, otherwise the application will be returned not considered. 
    • Ensure supporting documentation is authorised and securely attached to the application.  Supporting documentation may include:
        1. Enrolment Confirmation Letter
        2. Verified Academic Results/Transcripts, records of learning, and/or testimonials from school principals, etc.
        3. If the scholarship is awarded on factors other than academic merit (community involvement, sporting achievement) please include any documentation supporting these achievements in these areas, i.e. certificates, testimonials and anything else that may be of interest to the Scholarships Committee.
        4. Research Proposal
        5. Research Ethics Approval Letter
        6. Referee Statement
