Additional information


The award of scholarships will be based on academic merit.  A Committee will consider the marks achieved in academic courses relevant to studying science at the ANU. Any academic achievements you list in your application will also influence your ranking.

As a guide, applicants with the equivalent of a High Distinction at ANU will be considered. However, as the scholarships are highly competitive a mark at this level does not guarantee a scholarship.

Please note that as we take into account academic achievements additional to those reflected in your grades, and only courses relevant to studying science are considered, the award of a scholarship may not reflect your ranking at your home university.

The scholarship offers a stipend of $5,000 paid as a one-off payment after the census date (31 March/31 August) of your commencing semester.

Eligible students will be provided a link to the online application form after the ANU degree application deadline for each semester. Links will be sent out via the email address provided by student in the ANU International Student Application Form.

Please refer to the College of Science scholarship page for application open and closing dates.

Multiple scholarships are offered for students commencing in both semester 1 and semester 2.
