Scholarships

Curtin’s scholarship program rewards academic excellence, supports meaningful research and enables students from all backgrounds to realise their potential.

What is a scholarship?

A scholarship is a sum of money or other financial assistance given to students to support their study, which is not a loan. The money is given to you as long as you fulfil key requirements such as academic performance, work experience or volunteer commitments.

Who is eligible?

Curtin offers a range of scholarships for students who are:

  • from low-income backgrounds
  • from Indigenous backgrounds
  • high achievers
  • from regional areas
  • studying specific courses

Each program has different eligibility criteria, application processes and closing dates.

“I am a recipient of the Curtin Excellence Scholarship and the BHP Women in Engineering Scholarship. Receiving a scholarship has been an amazing opportunity and has taken so much pressure off. I can enjoy my course and my career, without having a huge HECS debt.”

Natasha Murphy, Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)
