Apply for La Trobe Access Scholarships

Applications for midyear equity and access scholarships and bursaries are now open.

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

An equity and access scholarship or bursary can support you to pursue your studies with confidence, and supports students who may have:

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

To make applying easy, you only need to submit one 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.

Our La Trobe equity and access scholarships are worth up to $5000 per year, and bursaries are normally valued up to $1000.

We also offer merit-based scholarships to recognise academic achievement, which are automatically assessed based on your results and do not require an application.

Applications close 11.59pm Sunday 11 July 2021.

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 our guide on supporting documentation for more information, or contact us at
