Scholarships and Financial Assistance

Scholarship landing page

Ara is proud to offer a wide range of scholarships which can save you thousands of dollars in fees. Some of our scholarships recognise academic excellence, community leadership and sporting achievement. Others are designed to help meet skills shortages in specific industries, or to encourage individuals from under-represented sectors of the community into higher education.

If you meet the scholarship criteria (and are not eligible for fees-free), we encourage you to apply. You can do this at the same time as you apply for your programme of study.
