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.

Round 1 Scholarship Applications will be opening soon!

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.
