The scholarship benefit received will vary depending on the scholar’s GPA at entry and associated tier:

  • Tier 1 – GPA 5.5 at entry. For Semester-based programs this is AUD$750 per 10 credit points; for Trimester-based programs: AUD$667 per 10 credit points.
  • Tier 2 – GPA 5 at entry. For Semester-based programs this is AUD$500 per 10 credit points; for Trimester-based programs: AUD$444 per 10 credit points.
  • Tier 3 – GPA 4.5 at entry. For Semester-based programs this is AUD$250 per 10 credit points; for Trimester-based programs AUD$222 per 10 credit points.

The total scholarship benefit ranges from $6000 to $18,000 over the maximum three (3) year duration of the scholarship, provided eligibility is maintained. The approved benefit at time of entry does not change during the tenure of your scholarship.

Where enrolment occurs in courses across both semesters and trimesters, the basis for the program (semester-based or trimester-based) applies.

The scholarship payment will be made in the form of a tuition fee waiver directly into the scholar’s tuition fee account, thereby reducing the tuition fee liability by the scholarship amount for each term during the program of study. The tuition fee may not be reflected on the tuition fee account until the census date has passed.


No application is required for this scholarship.

Scholarships will be awarded automatically to students upon application to study an eligible FEBE Engineering or Technology Postgraduate Coursework degree program at the University of Newcastle. Students will receive notification of the value of their scholarship with their offer.

Scholarship offers will be made on the basis of academic merit. All academic merit determinations are made in accordance with the University’s procedure for determining Grade Point Average.

The Faculty reserves the right not to award a scholarship.
