A Uni That Knows a Scholarship Helps

At CQUniversity, we believe a quality education can be for everyone – regardless of background, location or life circumstances. That’s why we offer a variety of scholarships and bursaries that can help with things like relocation, living on campus, laptops and technology, childcare, study and living expenses, travel and more.

Whether you’re just starting out or continuing your studies, receiving a scholarship can help balance your study and life commitments.  A scholarship looks good on your resume and may open the door to industry networks  and work experience opportunities.

The Australian Government also provides CQUniversity with funding under the Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP). The funds provided as part of this program are directed – exclusively - towards students from low socio-economic (SES) backgrounds (as defined by SEIFA), persons from regional areas and remote areas (as defined by ASGS), and Indigenous persons, people of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent and who identify as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.

The scholarship has made my workload easier to manage, as I do not have to stress over finances. It has made it possible for me to reside on campus and made accessing resources such as textbooks easier.

My scholarship has helped me so much through actually getting me through my first year at university. I don't think I'd be quite as motivated without it.
