To get a scholarship, you need to meet certain criteria, which can be based on things like:

area of study,  academic merit,  community service or involvement,  ethnicity,  financial hardship, the industry or trade, leadership, the region you grew up in, or where you plan to study.

Scholarships can apply to different education levels, such as a diploma or Master’s degree, and can also vary in what they cover. For example, some scholarships may cover tuition fees only, while others cover all course costs and some of your living expenses.
