Applying for a Scholarship

How do I apply for a scholarship?

Applications must be made online at the Online Australia Awards Scholarships Information System (OASIS) website. 

To apply you need to use Internet Explorer on a desktop computer not a mobile device when applying on OASIS.

Once submitted, your application cannot be changed. We strongly advise applicants applying online to do so well before the closing date. OASIS experiences peak usage in the days leading up to the closing date and applicants may experience delays.

Refer to the Applicant’s Online User Manual if you need help.

Applications open on 1 February 2019 and close on 30 April 2019 (midnight AEST).

Hard copy and emailed applications will not be accepted for Intake 2020.

For instructions on how to complete your online application, please refer to the Applicant Information Booklet, as well as the OASIS Intake 2020 Application User Guide.
