You can use the Find a Scholarship tool (opens in a new window) to help determine which scholarships you are eligible to apply for.

Step two - How to Apply

Check where to apply for your scholarship. Some scholarships, such as the Academic Excellence Scholarships, are automatically awarded. For other scholarships, you will need to apply using the Online Application Portal (opens in a new window) or through the UAC Equity Scholarship Portal. The application buttons on each scholarship page will indicate which portal you need to apply.

Step three - Personal Statement

For most Scholarships, you will need to support your application with a personal statement. The following video provides tips on how to write a personal statement.

Be sure to upload all requested documents in your application.

Step four - Submit Application

Submit your application before the closing date.

On successfully submitting your application, you will receive a confirmation email.

Next steps

Applications will be assessed after the relevant closing date. Please note, some scholarships require applicants to attend an interview, and in this case you will be contacted directly. All applicants will receive an email outcome to the email address in your application.
