ANU Learning for Life Scholarships


The ANU Learning for Life Students Scholarships have been introduced by The Australian National University as part of its partnership with The Smith Family to enhance the financial support of undergraduate students enrolled at Australian National University who are supported by The Smith Family's Learning for Life program. The scholarships may be used for any purpose to assist students during their enrolment at the Australian National University.


An applicant must be:

  • an Australian citizen, an Australian permanent resident or hold an Australian permanent humanitarian visa
  • supported by The Smith Family's Learning for Life program
  • enrolled as a full-time student in an undergraduate degree program at the Australian National University, which may include Honours. 


The value of each scholarship is $2,000 a year for each full-time year of undergraduate study for any eligible student who is active in The Smith Family's Learning for Life program. The scholarship is paid to The Smith Family and included in the payment made by The Smith Family to eligible students.

How to apply

There is no formal application process for this scholarship. The Smith Family will confirm the eligibility of each ANU Learning for Life student each semester, and after confirming enrolment, the University will provide funding to The Smith Family for distribution to all eligible students.
