What is a scholarship?

A scholarship is a sum of money or other financial assistance given to students to help support their study. Scholarships are not loans – the money is given to students provided they fulfil key merit or equity-based requirements.


Equity scholarships

Curtin STAR Scholarship

The Curtin STAR Scholarship has been developed to assist domestic undergraduate students who may otherwise not have an opportunity to attend university due to a low socio-economic background and financial hardship.

See Curtin STAR Scholarship


Harry Perkins Memorial Scholarship

The Harry Perkins Memorial Scholarship has been developed to support domestic undergraduate students who are required to relocate from a regional or remote area to commence their studies and can demonstrate financial hardship and low socio-economic background.

See Harry Perkins Memorial Scholarship


The closing date for equity scholarships is Friday 16 November 2018.
