Scholarship payments

Deakin offers a tailored scholarship program, incorporating options recognising your strengths, skills and needs.

If you are selected to receive a scholarship, your Scholarship Letter of Offer or Scholarship Terms and Conditions, will list the applicable eligibility and special conditions.

Payment types

Scholarship payments directly into your bank account

Some scholarships will make a payment directly to your nominated bank account. This will normally be processed four weeks after census date.

Student contribution/tuition fees

If your scholarship covers part or all of your student contributions/tuition fees, payment will be applied directly to your fee account within four weeks after census date.

Part-time students

If you are a part-time student, scholarships are generally taxable and will need to be declared as taxable income.  The University may withhold tax if you are studying a part-time load.

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has more information on whether or not your scholarship is taxable.
