Scholarship applications & assessments

To increase your chances of getting a scholarship, make sure you follow the application instructions and provide the required supporting documents.

The more information you provide on your application form, the better your chances of receiving a scholarship.

Eligibility requirements

Depending on the scholarship you apply for, you may be assessed on your academic performance or personal financial situation.

Most scholarships are only available to students who are enrolled full-time.

Applying for scholarships

Scholarship assessment

At Victoria University, we offer both equity and merit based scholarships.

Accepting your scholarship offer

Successful TAFE (certificate and diploma) and undergraduate (degree-level) scholarship offers are sent in late January and February. Recipients will receive a scholarship offer pack in the mail.

If you are successful you must return the acceptance documents by the required date or your scholarship will be allocated to someone else.

After accepting a scholarship you must maintain satisfactory academic progress to continue receiving the scholarship.

Scholarship payments

Scholarships are paid several months after scholarship assessments.

Payments for successful scholarship applications will usually be made by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) to your nominated bank account in late April (and/or September if applicable). This is after we have checked your enrolment status at Census.
