The Government of Tasmania, in partnership with the University, offers this prestigious award, in which the Premier takes great interest.
Available to students commencing study in any academic area except for the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. Selection for the scholarship will be based on excellent achievement in studies at school and a high tertiary entrance score.

Students taking the International Baccalaureate are also welcome to apply. Each scholarship provides a package of support to help with the costs of university study.
