Applications are open for a range of scholarships administered by the department for students at various year levels. 

Students in Grade 4 to Year 11 in 2023 and those completing Year 12 and planning to start tertiary studies in 2024 can apply for the scholarships.

To apply, students must be enrolled in Victorian schools and must be Australian citizens or permanent residents. There may be additional eligibility criteria, depending on the scholarship.

Some scholarships are available for Victorian government school students. Other scholarships are available to students across all sectors. 

The department will evaluate student applicants on their:

  • participation in school activities
  • community involvement
  • academic achievement.

Scholarships are provided through one-off payments or available for the duration of the student’s study. 

The department manages the scholarships on behalf of various trusts.

All scholarship applications close on Thursday 1 February 2024.
