How these scholarships can help 

At La Trobe, our equity and access scholarships and bursaries support coursework students from all backgrounds to reach their potential at university. 

They can support students who may have: 

  • Experienced financial difficulties 
  • Gone through personal hardship 
  • Come from a disadvantaged or underrepresented background 

How much are they worth? 

  • Equity and access scholarships are worth $5000 per year 
  • Bursaries are usually valued at a $1000 one-off payment 
  • We also offer merit-based scholarships to recognise academic achievement. These are automatically assessed based on your results and don’t require an application 

Easy application process 

  • To make applying easier, you only need to submit one (1) application and we’ll do the rest 
  • If your application is successful, we will match you to the scholarship or bursary that best fits your circumstances based on your eligibility 

VTAC information 

All new and current La Trobe students can apply for scholarships through VTAC.  

And remember: 

  • You don’t have to be applying for a course to submit a scholarship application 
  • VTAC accounts are only valid for the current application year (August 2021 to July 2022). This means accounts from previous years will no longer be active 

What you will need to do is: 

  1. Create a new VTAC account  
  2. Enter any relevant study claims and associated student numbers 

There is no charge to create a new VTAC account to apply for scholarships. 

And to make things even easier, here are some samples and demonstration applications to prepare you before you apply.
