Scholarships for Semester 1 2015

If you are hoping to start a course at an Australian university in semester 1 (February) 2015 and need funding, please make sure you start researching scholarships as soon as possible. Some schemes will ask you to already have an offer of place from your Australian university before you can apply, so it’s important to check all the criteria and deadlines that apply sooner rather than later.

There are two general scholarships that students applying to study in Australia can go for, though these awards are often restricted to postgraduate applicants. 

1. The Endeavour Awards are a merit-based scholarship scheme run by the Australian Government. They offer high-performing students, researchers and professionals from all over the world the opportunity to study in Australia. Applications typically open around April, and close in late June for courses starting the following year. For further information about the Endeavour Awards and how to apply please go to:

2. The Northcote Graduate Scholarships are run by the Britain-Australia Society. Applications close in late August for the following year's study. Application forms are available from the Society. For more information about these awards, please visit its website, here:
