What types of tertiary scholarships are there?
If you’ve already looked into scholarships, you’ll have quickly realised how many are available for tertiary education. They can be applied for at different stages, from undergraduate to studying for a Postgraduate Diploma (PhD), as well as for different industries. Whether you’re hoping to get into the construction, food or fibre trades, there are options out there to support you.
Scholarships also exist to help out students who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford study or training, and to encourage greater diversity in industries and in study/training courses. They aren’t just for people who perform well at school, with some based on criteria like the region you grew up in or what you’re hoping to study.
This means that there might be a scholarship out there which would be perfect for you. You won’t know unless you look!
