Applications for the 2015 Sydney Scholars Program are now closed

The Sydney Scholars Program offers opportunities for Year 12 students, who are commencing their studies in 2015, to apply for scholarships ranging from $6,000 to $10,000 in value and awarded in duration from one year, up to 5 years (combined degrees).

These prestigious scholarships will be offered to students who meet the selection criteria including an ATAR requirement of 95 and above. Students applying to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and Sydney College of Arts require an ATAR of 90 or above. If you are an international or New Zealand student, have completed an IB, and are applying for admission through UAC, you are eligible to apply.

For domestic students, if you receive an ATAR of 99.90 you will automatically be awarded a scholarship worth $10,000 for the duration of your undergraduate degree.

To complement the Sydney Scholars Program, you may also be assessed for a range of faculty specific scholarships. For more information about these, contact the relevant faculty.

To make the application process easier, you will only need to submit one online application form, upload your most recent school transcript and, if you are eligible, you will be assessed for a whole range of Sydney Scholars Awards as well as some faculty scholarships.

A personal statement will be included in the online application so you won't need to upload it as a separate document. We suggest that you complete a draft first and then you can cut and paste your final answers into the text boxes provided. Please note there is a 500 character limit on each text box.
