How do I apply for a Scholarship?
In this section you will find useful information around hints and tips on how to write a good scholarship application, checklists, and important dates.
The best way to complete a scholarship application is to give yourself plenty of time!
This will allow you to:
- Make sure you understand the selection criteria,
- Find all of the documents you’ll need.
What do I have to do?
Most scholarships have a formal application process. This usually involves completing an online application form, or downloading the form and completing it offline.
Many applications will require you to provide supporting documentation such as:
- a resume/curriculum vitae (CV) or your academic records (for merit scholarships)
- evidence of financial need (for equity scholarships)
- proof of your Indigenous heritage, if the scholarship is targeted at Indigenous students.
- a personal statement (or cover letter) explaining your reasons for applying, and your interests and goals.
Applicants may also need to demonstrate in writing or sometimes at an interview, how you meet any eligibility and selection criteria.
