Scholarships by pathways

Scholarships by pathways

Our scholarship pathways are based on your level of study and range from students starting their first degree up to those completing their doctoral studies. We also provide access to information about a range of external scholarships funded by corporate, institutional and private donors. Find a scholarship available for your academic pathway.


Whether you are already enrolled in a bachelor degree or are preparing to start your university journey, our undergraduate scholarships can assist you with the costs that come with university study.

Our undergraduate scholarships include those for school leavers (current Year 12 students) who select ECU as their first preference and students from designated equity groups, such as people from low socio-economic backgrounds, people with a disability, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students and those from rural areas.

Honours and postgraduate

We provide scholarships and awards to current and prospective honours and postgraduate students enrolled in an honours programme, postgraduate diploma, postgraduate certificate, or master by coursework.

Our honours and postgraduate scholarships generally have selection criteria based on academic merit and proposed research area, and can provide financial support to assist you with education and accommodation costs.

Higher degree by research

At ECU, we are committed to undertaking high quality research and have several scholarships for students undertaking a doctoral or master by research degree.

Research scholarships are designed to support Australian and New Zealand citizens and Australian permanent residents. We also support international postgraduate students with an exceptional research promise to study at ECU in a doctoral degree (PhD) or master by research.

For more information about research degrees at ECU, please see our Research degrees web page.

External scholarships

We appreciate that the demand for scholarships is high and very competitive so throughout the year we will endeavour to provide information to you here about scholarships and awards offered by foundations and agencies outside ECU.

You should direct any query regarding the application process of these scholarships to the provider. Alternatively, you can find a comprehensive list of externally provided scholarships at myfuture - Australia's career information & exploration service. Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students may like to visit The Aspiration Initiative, a new website providing information on scholarships available for undergraduate and postgraduate study.
