enrolling at ANU for the first time in an undergraduate or postgraduate coursework program in the Colleges.
This scholarship is not available to students who have already commenced their program at ANU
The award of scholarships will be based on academic merit. A Committee will consider the marks achieved in academic courses relevant to studying science at the ANU. Any academic achievements you list in your application will also influence your ranking.
As a guide, applicants with the equivalent of a High Distinction at ANU will be considered. However, as the scholarships are highly competitive a mark at this level does not guarantee a scholarship.
Please note that as we take into account academic achievements additional to those reflected in your grades, and only courses relevant to studying science are considered, the award of a scholarship may not reflect your ranking at your home university.
The scholarship offers a stipend of $5,000 paid as a one-off payment after the census date (31 March/31 August) of your commencing semester.
