Scholarships for graduate Engineering and IT students

Thanks to the generosity of our donors and supporters, you’re able to apply for a range of Engineering & IT scholarships.

Len Steven Scholarship applications are open until 2 October!

Most Engineering and IT scholarships are open across three rounds throughout the year.

Apply by completing an online application addressing the selection criteria.

Selection decisions are made by a panel comprising a representative of the Dean, the FEIT Scholarships Coordinator and senior department staff. A few scholarships also require an interview of shortlisted applicants – you’ll be notified if we’d like to meet you for an interview.

You can expect an outcome of your application approximately six weeks after the closing date.
