ANU College of Business & Economics Postgraduate Scholarship for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders

Overview

Each year the ANU College of Business and Economics offers the  ANU College of Business and Economics Postgraduate Scholarship for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander to provide encouragement and support to Indigenous students undertaking postgraduate studies by removing the financial burden of tuition fees.

Field of study

Postgraduate coursework programs offered by the ANU College of Business and Economics

Eligibility

The award is available each year to a prospective ANU student who:

  • is an Australian citizen;
  • is of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) descent;
  • identifies as an Australian Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person;
  • is accepted as such by the community in which they live, or formerly lived;
  • has completed an undergraduate degree; and
  • has received an offer for admission to a postgraduate coursework program offered by the ANU College of Business and Economics.

Selection

Selection is made on the basis of academic merit.

If there is no eligible candidate or candidate of sufficient merit among the prospective student pool, the selection committee will consider continuing CBE students that meet the eligibility criteria, and award the scholarship to a second year student.

Benefits

The scholarship covers 100% of the Domestic Tuition Fees (DTF) for the standard full-time duration of the postgraduate program (up to 120 units)

How to apply

There is no application as students are automatically considered based on them meeting the eligibility criteria or conditions prescribed under the Eligibility section.

Deferred students who have applied for admission to the ANU in a previous intake, and then formally deferred their offer may still be considered for this award along with the commencing cohort. However, these students will need to contact the College Scholarships Office to request consideration of the award.

Further information

The scholarship will be offered in Semester 1 only.
