Canberra Refugee Support Scholarships

General Scholarships

The funds can be used for any purpose chosen by the student.

The number of scholarships and their individual value is decided by Canberra Refugee Support based on the amount donated. Canberra Refugee Support is unable to guarantee any number or value of scholarships in advance.

The purpose of the Canberra Refugee Support Scholarships is to recognise meritorious performance and to encourage and support outstanding refugee students in the pursuit of their personal development goals.

The scholarship is funded from donations provided from the community or organisations. Each annual round is treated separately and the amount of money available for scholarships is dependent upon donations for the year concerned.

Eligibility Criteria: Scholarships are awarded to asylum seekers or refugees who are studying or seeking to study at CIT or at other institutions while they are living in Canberra. Winners are selected on the basis of meritorious performance rather than academic results alone.

Application closing date: Saturday 31 December 2022
