University life made a little easier by Scholarships

Find out if you're eligible for an ECU scholarship.
Surviving as a student at University is hard. Surviving as an Indigenous student can often be much harder. Whilst there are a lot of Indigenous students adapting and excelling in the tertiary setting, many of them struggle.
Not just with the studies, but coping with every day life and the challenges it presents. Most commonly, it simply comes down to their financial capacity to support themselves through University without it impacting on their families and home life.
While Scholarships have been around for a long time, they were perceived to be out of reach for a lot of people. The perception stems from the idea that scholarships were for the gifted or for those from a different cultural background.
However, in changing that perception, Edith Cowan University (ECU) recognises that tertiary education should be accessible by all and not out of reach due to financial constraints.
ECU offers a range of scholarships to current and prospective students aimed at providing financial support to
assist them in the pursuit of their goals.
Each scholarship has its own application period, eligibility criteria and value. Our scholarships cover all academic study pathways and a range of criteria, enabling us to provide a wide range of scholarships to a diverse range of students.
So if you're a Year 12 school leaver, an undergraduate or even starting your research or doctoral degree, find out if you're eligible for an ECU scholarship today.
