Scholarships for academic achievement, creative performance and sporting excellence

First published 2 October 2019

Applications for QUT Excellence and QUT Sport Scholarships close 15 November 2019. Students expecting to receive an OP 1-5 are encouraged to apply as applicants will be considered for all academic scholarships available to them.

QUT Excellence Scholarships (formerly Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships), valued between $10,000 and $30,000 are our premier offering for school leavers with outstanding academic achievement and/or creative performance.

QUT Sport Scholarships are awarded to students across many sports at all levels of development and performance, from aspiring to elite athletes. In 2020 QUT will award sport scholarships valued between $1,000 and $20,000.

Students applying for a course where entry is dependent on an audition or portfolio are automatically considered for our Creative Industries and Elite Visual and Performing Arts scholarships and are not required to submit a separate scholarship application. Students applying for an academic or sport scholarship are required to submit an online scholarship application.

Scholarship recipients receive financial support as well as other opportunities through the scholarship program. Automatic admission to the College of Excellence offers opportunities for professional development, global leadership, and skills development as well as connecting you with like-minded peers.
