The Equity Scholarship Scheme University of Newcastle assists financially disadvantaged undergraduate students with the costs of study.
All applications are managed by Universities Admissions Centre (UAC). Whether you are expecting an offer of admission or you are a continuing student, please visit www.uac.edu.au/equity/ and download the current Equity Scholarships Booklet.
Applications for 2017 are currently open at www.uac.edu.au/equity
Initial offer rounds will be in January 2017.
To be eligible to apply for this scholarship you must meet the following criteria:
If documentation is not provided your application will not be processed. Please have all required documents available for upload as PDF, DOC, DOCX, JPEG, or JPG files prior to completing the online application process.
The scholarship currently provides a benefit of a total of $3000 per annum for a full year of full-time study (30 units or more in each semester), payable as two instalments of $1500 after each semester census date.
A pro-rata payment of $750 will apply for part-time enrolment.
Midyear applicants will receive payment in one semester only and must reapply in the next academic year.
Selection is based on the assessment of information provided in the Equity Scholarship application with UAC, and in accordance with the number of scholarships and funding available in each academic year. Applications are assessed and ranked against different areas of educational disadvantage, with financial disadvantage being a primary criteria. Scholarship offers are made to applicants who best meet this criteria.
Both successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application. Successful notices will include a formal offer of the scholarship and instructions on how to accept the scholarship. Unsuccessful applicants may reapply in subsequent Admissions rounds or if their circumstances change.
If you are unsuccessful, it does not mean that you are not in need; rather, it means that other applicants have been assessed as being in greater need. Please contact the Scholarships Adviser to discuss what other options may be available.
