The purpose of the Scholarship is to support UNSW on-campus accommodation costs for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students.

The Scholarship will be paid as accommodation fees directly to an approved UNSW on-campus accommodation (including affiliated providers).

While Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identity is unique and sacred to every person, UNSW scholarships for Indigenous students will require proof of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander identity and heritage. If you have not already provided proof of identity and heritage to Nura Gili, any Indigenous specific scholarship offer made by UNSW Scholarships will be conditional upon receipt of proof of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander heritage to Nura Gili as outlined on the Nura Gili website. For more information, please visit: Indigenous Confirmation Declaration.

You must provide evidence supporting the below criteria in your online application. Please refer to the Scholarship Application Supporting Documents for a detailed list of examples.

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

To be eligible, applicants must meet all the following criteria:
  • Indigenous Australian (Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander only)
  • Be commencing or currently enrolled in an undergraduate or postgraduate coursework degree program at UNSW
  • Be residing at any UNSW on-campus accommodation including affiliated providers (e.g. Shalom College, UNSW Village, New College and New College Village).
Each applicant will be assessed on their ability to demonstrate:
  • Academic Merit
  • Leadership skills (school, workplace, or community)
  • Extra-curricular activities (sporting, cultural activities, volunteer/work experience)
  • Aptitude and commitment to studies

UNSW reserves the right not to award a scholarship, where there is no applicant of sufficient merit, or if the applicant does not meet the scholarship eligibility and/or selection criteria.
