Financial assistance

Scholarships and sponsored students

The Australia Awards Scholarship (AAS) program is funded by the Australian Government as part of Australia's foreign aid program. The program provides opportunities for people from selected developing countries to study in Australia. These scholarships are awarded either on merit or on nomination by home governments. There are a limited number of undergraduate scholarships available.

Scholarships funded by institutions

Institutions offer a range of scholarships designed to help international students fund the cost of their study. These scholarships may be targeted to particular areas of study or may be country-specific scholarships.

Read each institution's entry for more information.

Sponsored students

Sponsored students are those who are accepted for a course of study at an institution and who receive full funding support for their study and/or other agreed educational expenses from sources other than from their own funding. To be recognised by an institution as a sponsored student, a student must be funded under an agreement with a sponsoring authority recognised by the institution.
