Southern Cross University offers a range of scholarships for undergraduate (your first degree), postgraduate, Indigenous Australian students as well as international students. There are also scholarships available to help you study overseas for a short period as an international exchange student.
Scholarships currently range in value from $600 to $60,000 and the basis for selection varies widely.
Through our scholarships program, scholarships are made available by the Vice Chancellor, industry providers and generous donors who believe in the value of education. The Australian Government also provides scholarships.
While the selection criteria may differ, all scholarships are designed to recognise academic achievement, community involvement and leadership. They encourage student success as well as support students with demonstrated financial or other disadvantages.
All students are welcome to apply for a scholarship and the process is simple. First, use the Scholarships Finder to see if there are any scholarships for which you are eligible. Commencing students can apply once and be in the running for a wide range of eligible scholarships. Current student scholarship applications are made in My Enrolment and are specific to the relevant scholarships.
Students who will be receiving financial support from Centrelink while they are studying are encourage to lodge a second application. See Equity Scholarships for more information.
