Community Tertiary Scholarships
This page is dedicated to providing information for all residents of Central Australia regarding scholarships, grants and bursaries available for people wanting assistance to study at a tertiary institution, or complete a VET or TAFE course.
Central Australian Education Foundation - The Central Australian Education Foundation was established to provide much needed financial assistance and support to local youth to help them achieve their post high school education, training and vocation aspirations. We recognise that the cost of rural students pursuing their post high school goals is often much greater than those of their metropolitan counterparts and that sometimes these costs can be prohibitive.
John Hawkins Memorial Scholarship - The Rotary Club of Alice Springs encourages local students intending to commence tertiary study in 2014 to apply for next year’s scholarship. Money raised from the annual Rotary Club of Alice Springs Melbourne Cup sweep, helps fund the scholarship. The scholarship is valued at $18,000 paid in 6 equal instalments.
Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Scholarship Program - Each year scholarships are awarded to full-time, first year undergraduates studying at an Australian University or College campus for the first time.
Bernie Kilgariff Memorial Scholarship - a one-off $3,000 scholarship for medical/health related studies.
NT Government - Higher Education for School Leavers provides 40 scholarships of up to $3,500.
VET Scholarships - The Department of Business, Employment and Training Division administers VET scholarships for study in 2013. The scholarships are open to school leavers and those that are working part-time or unemployed and enrolled in a Certificate III to Diploma level course to assist them to gain full time employment. Scholarships close on Friday 1 March 2013.
