Founded on scholarship and philanthropy


The Women’s College offers a number of scholarships for resident students. These are awarded on the basis of merit and financial need. Scholarships are available, for example, to students from government schools, rural areas, Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds, post graduate students undertaking medicine or scientific research and students studying performance at the Conservatorium of Music.

The Grace Frazer Award is an academic entrance prize given to the student or students who enter the College in their first year of tertiary study directly from school with the highest ATAR in their College fresher cohort. No application is required for this Award. Proof of ATAR along with evidence of Australian citizenship or a Commonwealth Supported Place at the University of Sydney is required.

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

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

Scholarship applications  for the 2021 academic year are now open. Please download and submit the application via email or post by 5pm on Tuesday 6 October 2020. Instructions for returning documentation are contained in the scholarship application form.

For further information, please email the Registrar or phone +61 2 9517 5018.

Donations to the Women’s College to support our scholarship program are warmly welcomed.
