How to apply for scholarships and awards

You could be eligible for one of Deakin University's scholarships. We offer a range of academic excellence (merit) and access and equity needs-based scholarships.

The application process and closing dates for each scholarship may be different.

Please read the How to apply section on each scholarship for the relevant closing dates and instructions on the application process. Your application will be assessed and ranked on the information you provide.

Who can complete a scholarship application?

All applications must be completed by you as the applicant.  Applications must not be completed by a third party without approval from the Scholarships Office.  If you are not the applicant and intend to complete an application on behalf of a Deakin student or future Deakin student you must provide the Scholarships Office with a copy of the General Power of Attorney before the application is submitted.

Due to Deakin's privacy policy the Scholarships Office will not provide specific details of any scholarship application/offer to anyone other than the applicant.
