The next round of La Trobe Access Scholarship applications will open Monday May 30 2022 for new and current students.

At La Trobe, our access scholarships and bursaries support coursework students from all backgrounds to reach their potential at university.
An access scholarship or bursary can assist you financially to pursue your studies with confidence, and supports students who may:

  • Experience financial difficulties
  • Endure personal hardship
  • Come from a disadvantaged or underrepresented background

Our La Trobe access scholarships are worth up to $5,000 per year, and bursaries are a minimum $1,000 one-off payment. We also offer merit-based scholarships to recognise academic achievement, which are automatically assessed based on your results and do not require an application.

All new and current La Trobe students are welcome to apply for scholarships.

To ensure your application has the best chance of success, make sure that you attach any relevant supporting documentation or evidence in the sections that ask for it. You can refer to the Apply for a La Trobe Access Scholarship page for more information, or contact us at
