Kim Jackson Scholarship


The Kim Jackson Scholarship is to be awarded to a woman from a non-metropolitan area and enrolled in the ANU Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Engineering (Research and Development) single or double degree for the duration of their undergraduate degree.

Funding for this award has been provided by Ms Kim Jackson, an ANU Alumna who graduated in 2002 with a Bachelor of Engineering Honours and a Bachelor of Commerce. Kim is a strong advocate on how education has the power to change lives and believes this scholarship will change the life of the recipient, enabling them to study at ANU and engage in all facets of university life.

How to apply

Applications for 2021 have now closed. Information about future rounds of this scholarship will be available when applications open for 2022

To be considered for the award applicants must apply for admission through the ANU Admission Scholarship and Accommodation (ASA) application system and elect to be considered for scholarships.

Students who meet the eligibility criteria are required to submit a short video application, using the prescribed form, by the application close date to be considered for the award.

The purpose of the video application is for the applicant to 
•    Demonstrate their passion for Engineering 
(eg why do you want to study Engineering at the ANU, what areas interest you the most, have you engaged in any extracurricular activities in the area of engineering)
•    Describe their grand vision for using their Engineering Degree 
(eg what do you hope to achieve once you graduate from the ANU)
•    Outline what the scholarship means to them

The content and the format of the video application is at the student's discretion and does not require professional editing or video equipment (smart phone recording is all that is expected, video-quality will not be taken into account). Videos should be no more than three minutes in length.

Video applications should be submitted via an Apply Now button which will be available on this page in early 2021 when applications for this scholarship next open.

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.
