ANU College of Business and Economics Undergraduate Scholarship for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander


The ANU College of Business & Economics may award scholarships to students from Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander communities who are applying for admission to undergraduate degree programs offered by the College. 

This scholarship will assist with the cost of studying in an undergraduate coursework program at the College and offers students the chance to be recognised for their academic achievements, meet other scholarship recipients and build strong professional networks.

Field of study

All disciplines at the ANU College of Business and Economics


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 Year 12 qualification in Australia; and
  • has made an application for admission to the Australian National University to a single, or a flexible double degree with one of the programs offered by the ANU College of Business and Economics

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 for the award.


Selection is made on the basis of academic merit.


The scholarship is $10,000 per annum. The award is paid in equal instalments at the beginning of each semester providing the recipient meets the ongoing scholarship eligibility of maintaining a weighted average mark (WAM) of 60% calculated across all courses taken in a semester.

The award payment will align to the recipient's academic study load. For example, 24 unit enrolment constitutes 100% award payment; 18 unit enrolment constitutes 75% award payment, etc.

How to apply

All applicants applying for admission to ANU through the direct Admission Scholarship and Accommodation Application will be automatically considered for the award based on them meeting the eligibility criteria and electing to be considered for scholarships.

When you apply directly to ANU for admission as a domestic undergraduate student, you will have the opportunity to be considered for this opportunity within the same application. Other such support options are enlisted on the Direct application scholarships page.

Further information

If there is no 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 (or third) year student.

The scholarship will be offered in Semester 1 only.
