Ben Tucker, Engineering
The John Curtin Undergraduate Scholarship has been amazing. It has widened my network and effectively paid off my HECS debt. The people in the program are also very lovely.
Indiana Weeden, Medical Radiation Science
My scholarship helped to pay for my move from my hometown Albany to Perth, and continuing expenses such as rent, bills and study costs. It has also connected me with a casual job at the Perth Radiological Clinic, which has helped me better understand my studies and progress my career.
What is a scholarship?
A scholarship is a sum of money or other financial assistance you receive to help support your study. Scholarships are not loans – the money is given to you provided you fulfil key merit or equity-based requirements.
You can apply for a scholarship even if you have already applied to Curtin.
