Indigenous Scholarships

We believe in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation at every level of our study, work and research.

We offer support for Indigenous students at many levels, including financial support through scholarships.

For those of you in Years 11 and 12, you might be interested in attending the 2015 Indigenous Australian Engineering Summer School, an annual event established by Engineering Aid Australia and hosted by the University of Sydney.

Please note: the scholarships below require completing an online application. The online application process requires Adobe Flash, and for a trouble-free application, we recommend using Google Chrome, particularly if you are using an Apple Macintosh.)
