About Us

Professor Ian Jacobs

I am delighted to welcome you to UNSW Australia, one of Australia's leading research and teaching universities.

This website provides information on the many scholarships and sponsored awards offered by this University. These scholarships and awards are a reflection of our strong commitment to excellence and the generous support provided to students from University funds as well as from corporate and private donors, including our alumni.

Our scholarships help students to achieve their potential, and enhance the experience of individuals who might otherwise struggle financially to maintain a place at university. They reward excellence, encourage international mobility, diversity and equity, all critical themes in the UNSW 2025 Strategy.

The extensive range of scholarships on offer include opportunities which are: Faculty or School based; industry linked; for rural students; for Indigenous Australians; for international students; and for high achieving students. This site will help you identify a scholarship to suit you and your needs.

I encourage you to use our online search tool and apply for a scholarship which supports and recognises your potential.

Our Services

 

UNSW Scholarships is responsible for the administration of all undergraduate and postgraduate coursework scholarships offered at UNSW and is the point of contact for any questions relating to these scholarships.

Scholarships are offered in a variety of categories and are funded by the University with the support of many generous donors and organisations. Merit Scholarships are available to recognise your academic and other achievements (such as leadership, community involvement, commitment to a program of study). Equity Scholarships provide assistance to students that may experience educational disadvantage or are from low socio-economic backgrounds, and to support access and diversity.

UNSW Scholarships is home to the Elite Athlete Support Program and Sports Scholarships, including the Ben Lexcen Sports Scholarship. 

We also provide information on Prestigious Programs for UNSW students to undertake graduate study at overseas institutions, and manage the Australian selection process for the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program Scholarship to study at Duke University/USC in the United States.

Please search for a scholarship program that may suit you and check the eligibility, selection criteria and closing dates. Scholarships are competitive and there are less scholarships than applicants. UNSW Scholarships allows you to apply for as many scholarships as you are eligible for.
