As part of the scholarship application process you will be required to submit documentary evidence in support of your application. In most cases you should upload these documents as part of your on-line application.
The supporting documentation that you will need to supply will depend on the information you provide in your application. The supporting documentation must confirm the information you provide in your application. This documentation will be reviewed as part of your application and should be as specific as possible.
Remember it is the quality of documentation not the quantity that will be most useful in assessing your application. The documents supplied need to substantiate your personal statements as well as any impact on you.
Typical examples of supporting documentation include, but are not limited to:
Please do not provide bank statements, group certificates, rental agreements unless otherwise requested.
If you need assistance with the types of documentation you should supply please contact the Scholarship Office.
The Supporting Documentation Due Date is detailed on the individual scholarship pages and will vary depending on the scholarships applied for.
You should keep a list of the scholarships you are applying for and check their individual due dates for the date the supporting documents needs to be supplied.
If you are applying for more than one scholarship, you should provide the supporting documentation before the first due date. This will ensure that your application for all scholarships will be considered.
What supporting documents should I supply?
The supporting documents you supply should substantiate the information you provide in your scholarship application. Where possible, the supporting documentation you provide should be specific and not general in nature.
What does a certified copy mean?
The document is a true copy of the original and has been sighted by an acceptable person. To have a document certified, you should take the original and a copy to an authorised person. The person must then write on every page of copied document: "I have sighted the original document and certify this to be a true copy of the original." (sample statement)
The person should sign each statement and provide their designation, for example, "Pharmacist."
What type of Centrelink statement can I provide?
Please provide a current (no more than a month old) Centrelink Income Statement. The statement should show:
On-line payment history reports printed directly from the Centrelink website are not acceptable documentation.
I download my Centrelink Income Statement directly from the Centrelink website. What should I send?
If you don't receive a hard-copy Centrelink Income Statement you can upload a copy of your current PDF statement provided by Centrelink directly via your on-line application. Alternatively you can email a copy to email@example.com. The PDF must be the original downloaded from the Centrelink website. Please don't print and scan the document.
Please ensure that the statement displays the required information detailed above.
I only have a Health Care Card, will this do?
Yes, a certified copy of your Health Care Card can also be used as supporting documentation.
I don't have/can't find my Centrelink Income Statement?
Please call your Centrelink adviser and ask for a new Centrelink Income Statement to be sent. Please ensure you allow sufficient time to provide the statement to the Scholarships Office before the specified deadline. Alternatively log into the Centrelink website and request a new Centrelink Income Statement.
I'm having trouble uploading my supporting documents?
Prior to the scholarship closing you will be able to re-enter your on-line scholarship application at any time. You can use the 'Upload Documents' option at the top on the application page.
