Step 2: Apply for a scholarship

  1. Complete the application form and indicate which scholarships you want to apply for. You can apply for multiple scholarships using the same form:
  2. Gather your supporting documents. You must supply your CV or resume. You may also choose to supply other documents you think will support your application, such as written references.

What happens next?

The National Centre for Econometric Research (NCER) Honours Scholarship will be awarded to the applicants with the highest overall result in their undergraduate degree in either economics or finance.

If your application is successful, the Assistant School Administration Officer will contact you to let you know.

If you are selected for more than one scholarship, you will be asked to choose which one you will accept. If you decline the offer of a scholarship, it may be awarded to the second most qualified applicant if appropriate.


The National Centre for Econometric Research (NCER) Honours Scholarship will be paid for up to two semesters. They are renewable after the first semester if your progress in the course is deemed satisfactory.

To keep your scholarship, you must:

  • stay enrolled full-time (48 credit points of study). We expect that you'll commit at least 30 hours a week to your research, averaged over the year of your degree
  • maintain satisfactory progress in your course and/or maintain grade point average (GPA) of 6 or above in your required coursework units
  • apply for approval to undertake paid employment while studying. Approval must be given by the Head of School on the advice of your principal supervisor. Any paid employment must not interfere with your study program, and QUT reserves the right to terminate your scholarship if your progress is unsatisfactory as the result of additional paid work.

You will not be required to provide any service to QUT during or after your scholarship period as a condition of receiving your scholarship.

If you withdraw from your course or any units after the census date, you will need to repay the scholarship for that semester and cover the tuition fees for any units you were enrolled in within 30 days.
