If you know what you’re looking for
If you know a little bit about the scholarship, or the type of scholarship you are looking for the best place to start is the Search for text box, which will look for a matching word or phrase in any of these places:
- the Scholarship name
- the Scholarship description
- the eligibility description
For advanced searching use the Search Scholarships and Prizes tool. This will help you narrow down your results, or expand your choices.
The more criteria you select the narrower the search
You can view scholarships under some general classifications and keep adding additional search criteria to narrow it down. The search results page will give you summary of your search criteria
|Level||Prospective, Undergraduate, Honours, Postgraduate|
|College||Engineering, Arts, Business and Economics, Education, Science, Law, General (which is University-wide)|
|Subject||This will give you only the scholarships associated with that particular subject. If you want to broaden your search, ensure the Include general and College-wide scholarships/prizes box is ticked so you can see all the scholarships that you might be eligible for, and not just the ones associated with that particular subject|
|Specifically for||This is another way of narrowing the search based on keywords that are unique to your personal circumstances|

Prizes are generally awarded on merit and do not need an application, so if you want to see what prizes are available select No application required only.
