UniLodge Australia Scholarship


Each year the Australian National University may offer up to five UniLodge Australia Scholarships with the aim of supporting domestic undergraduate school-leavers from disadvantaged backgrounds enrolling in a course of study at the University.


The award is available each year to a prospective student who:

  • is an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, New Zealand citizen (or dual citizenship holders of either Australia or New Zealand) or Australian humanitarian visa holder;
  • is current school leaver in Australia at an Australian High School (or College);
  • is applying for admission to University for the first time;
  • is eligible for National Access Scheme adjustment factors.


Selection is made on the basis of applicants meeting the eligibility criteria.

Preference will be given to students who meet the following criteria, in order of priority:

  • identifies as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander;
  • is experiencing financial hardship;
  • is from rural or regional Australia.

In the situation where multiple students meet the above priority groups, selection will be then based on academic merit.


The scholarship offfers a stipend of $8,000 per year for up to 5 years paid in equal instalments at the beginning of each semester.

How to apply

All applicants applying for admission through the ANU Admission Scholarship and Accommodation Application System 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.
