Elspeth Young Memorial Grant


The Elspeth Young Memorial Grants have been made possible by the generous bequest from Dr Elspeth Young to provide financial support to Indigenous Australian undergraduate and graduate students at the Australian National University. This support will be directed to costs necessary and incidental to studies, but not including any fees.


The award is available each year to an Indigenous Australian student who is:

(a) enrolled in a program of study leading to the award of a degree at the Australian National University;

(b) able to demonstrate financial need.

Selection basis

Selection is made on the basis of application and financial need. Preference may be given to students who have not previously applied or been awarded the grant. 

Further information

Closing dates for these scholarship applications are the first week of Semester 1 and the first week of Semester 2.
