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
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.
The University of Tasmania acknowledges the essential support of the University
Foundation and Tasmanian local government and businesses in its Tasmania Scholarships
program. The University is particularly grateful to the Government of Tasmania for
the assistance it provides to a substantial number of students through scholarships
