Students may apply for as many scholarships as they are eligible for, and if successful, will be awarded the highest value scholarship. Students cannot hold more than one externally funded scholarship. If students are successful in receiving an offer for more than one scholarship valued the same, or they are successful for more than one externally funded scholarship, they will have the opportunity to select their preferred scholarship.

Centrelink

Taxation

Generally scholarship money paid to full-time students is not treated as taxable income, however if your study load is less than 75 credits (part-time) your scholarship money is not  tax exempt. Other than the full-time study requirement, the general rule is that scholarships are exempt from taxation unless:

  • It is a condition of the scholarship that a recipient is required to undertake activities that are of use, help or benefit to the scholarship provider - then the student is rendering a service by agreeing to undertake those activities;
  • An award is received by a student where the scholarship is not provided principally for educational purposes.
  • During or upon completion of the degree for which the scholarship is awarded a recipient is required to become, or shall continue to be, an employee of the funding body; or

The Australian Tax Office has a tool  to help you determine if your scholarship is taxable. For expert advice please contact the Australian Taxation Office  or your accountant when completing your annual Tax Return.  If a letter regarding your scholarship is required for taxation purposes, please contact the Scholarships Office .
