Founded on scholarship and philanthropy


The Women’s College offers a number of scholarships for resident students. These are awarded on the basis of academic potential and financial need. Scholarships are available, for example, to students from:

  • Government schools
  • Rural areas
  • Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds
  • Postgraduate students undertaking medicine or scientific research
  • Students studying performance at the Conservatorium of Music

Students seeking consideration for a residential scholarship must first complete the residency application. 

Scholarships for the 2022 academic year will open in July 2021 and close on Tuesday 5 October 2021 at 5pm.

Note: The Women’s College does not award scholarships at mid-year (Semester 2) entry.

In addition to the scholarship program at Women’s, each university has an extensive range of scholarships for students studying undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. Further information on the scholarships provided by each university can be found below:
