The UTAS Scholarships Program provides students with significant financial and academic support to study
at the University of Tasmania. Awards are offered in a wide range of disciplines and selection is based on academic
merit and/or financial need. They are available to students studying at undergraduate, honours, and postgraduate coursework levels.
Our program runs on a calendar year basis. Applications for most awards commencing in Semester 1 open at the beginning of August and close strictly on 31 October in the year prior. An exception to this is scholarships for continuing engineering students, which open in May and close 30 June.
There is a very limited round for Semester 2 commencement, mainly for honours students, domestic students travelling overseas, and for the Indigenous Commonwealth Scholarships (subject to availability of funding). Applications for these awards open in May and close 30 June.
Awards currently open for application (closing 30 June 2013)
