The College will consider as 'neurodiversity' any diagnosed medical condition listed on the neurodiversity hub website:

To be recognised as a 'commencing' ANU student, applicants must begin their ANU studies in either the Summer session or semester one of the year the award is being awarded. Students who started their ANU studies in the winter session or semester two of the previous year will be deemed 'continuing' and therefore ineligible for the award.

Please note that applicants need to conform to the University's concurrent scholarship position as outlined in clause 17 of the ANU Scholarship, grants and bursary (coursework) procedure. The total annual scholarship limit can be found here.
