Scholarships for academic achievement and creative performance

First published 26 June 2019

QUT Excellence Scholarships (formerly Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships), are our premier offering for school leavers with outstanding academic achievement or creative performance. 

The scholarships, valued at $10,000 to $30,000, are highly competitive and are awarded to the top ranked students who have indicated QUT as their first QTAC preference.

To be eligible for the academic scholarships, students must receive an OP 1–2 or equivalent. Students who think they may receive an OP 1–5 are encouraged to apply.

All students who participate in an audition or portfolio process for specified creative industries courses are automatically considered for our creative industries and elite visual and performing arts scholarships.

Applications for Excellence Scholarships are open from 1 August 2019 to 15 November 2019.

Students receive financial support as well as other opportunities through the scholarship program.

If you want to know more, talk to us at Open Day in the Scholarships tent, or attend an information session about opportunities for high achievers.

The scholarship I received for academic excellence gave me access to a network of driven people as well as workshops for leadership and personal development, which helped me grow in my early years of university. The scholarship provides substantial support financially but the experiences that accompany it have benefited me the most. Some of my best friends are the people I met through my scholarship program.
