Access to higher education is very important to the National Indigenous Knowledges Education Research Innovation (NIKERI) Institute. We believe everyone should experience education without limitations or financial hardship. As such, there is a broad range of scholarships available that can provide an opportunity to substantially reduce the cost of attending university.

Scholarships to support your studies

Scholarships provide financial support for students and can help ensure your study experience is positive and productive.

A number of scholarships are merit-based or awarded as recognition for certain achievements. Many are also in place to redress the inequity in access for students seeking to gain higher education qualifications.

When should I apply for a scholarship?

You can only apply for a scholarship once you are enrolled in a course. However, you should start thinking about scholarships immediately after your NIKERI Institute application interview. That way, if your application is successful, you can hit the ground running with scholarship applications.
