Tertiary Scholarships & Bursaries for Central Australians

This page provides 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 - 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. For more information visit their Facebook page.

John Hawkins Memorial Scholarship - The Rotary Club of Alice Springs encourages local students intending to commence tertiary study next year 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. Details re the closing date will be available later this year. For more information contact email.

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.
