Unanswered application questions or claims without supporting documentation will not be assessed. Late applications/supporting documentation will not be accepted


Equity Scholarship

UNSW offers a wide range of Equity Scholarships, Awards and Grants to assist students to undertake full-time study for the duration of their degree program. Click here for a list of Equity scholarships available in 2022. More scholarships will be added to this list progressively from July.

If you are in Year 12 and from an identified low-SES background, UAC will automatically generate an application for equity scholarships as part of your UAC application. You only need to submit an EAS or Equity scholarship application if you want us to know about any additional hardships that have affected your studies.

All other applicants for equity scholarships will need to submit either:

1. An Educational Access Scheme application via UAC


2. An Equity Scholarships Application via UAC
