Equity Scholarship offers

Institutions make Equity Scholarship offers to applicants who demonstrate the greatest level of need within a competitive application process.

Click the 'ES Outcomes' button to find out whether you’ve been made a scholarship offer. To log in, you'll need your ES application number and ES PIN.

You can only receive an ES offer from an institution:

  • from which you’ve received an offer of admission, or
  • at which you’re currently enrolled.

Being eligible does not guarantee a scholarship

Institutions decide which scholarship rounds to participate in and who will receive an Equity Scholarships offer. UAC doesn't select applicants, or have the power to persuade institutions to make a particular offer, or question decisions made by institutions.

Meeting the eligibility criteria doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be awarded a scholarship. There are a limited number of Equity Scholarships, and many more applicants than scholarships.

As part of a competitive application process, applicants are ranked against eligibility criteria and institutions award scholarships to applicants who best meet that eligibility criteria. If you’re unsuccessful it doesn’t mean that you’re not in need; rather, it means that there are other applicants who’ve been assessed as being in greater need.

Successful applicants

If you’ve been awarded an Equity Scholarship, you’ll receive an email from UAC advising that you have correspondence.

Your scholarship offer is made on the condition that you’re eligible to receive the scholarship on your first census date for the scholarship period. Institutions will confirm your eligibility before any payments are made to you.

Your institution will provide details of when and how your payment will be made.

All Equity Scholarships have conditions. It’s your responsibility to advise your institution of any changes to your circumstances that would make you ineligible for your Equity Scholarship.

If you have any enquiries about your scholarship offer, the associated terms and conditions, or the acceptance process, contact the institution that has awarded your scholarship.

Unsuccessful applicants

If you haven’t been awarded a scholarship in the most recent offer round, the following message will be displayed when you log in to ES Outcomes:

You have not, as yet, been made an Equity Scholarship offer. Your application will be considered in future offer rounds. To be considered for an Equity Scholarship offer you must be currently enrolled at, or have received an offer of admissions to, an institution participating in the relevant scholarship offer round.

If you’re unsuccessful, your application may be considered in future offer rounds provided the institution at which you are currently enrolled or from which you have received an offer of admission is participating in that offer round.

If you’re not awarded an Equity Scholarship in any offer round, after the last offer round has passed you’ll receive an email from UAC advising you that you have correspondence.

You’re welcome to reapply in future admissions periods if you meet the scholarship eligibility criteria of the institution/s to which you are applying and/or at which you are enrolled. You will need to submit a new application (and new supporting documentation if required). UAC won’t use any of your previous application material for subsequent Equity Scholarships applications. If you want to transfer documents from a previous application, download the Document transfer form.
