16 August 2020 (Curtin Open Day)
Most scholarships close on 13 November 2020, with the exception of the John Curtin Scholarship Program Scholarships which close 16 September 2020.
Note: The Curtin Excellence Scholarship is based on eligibility only and does not require an application.
Outcomes will be sent after course offers in mid-January 2020
John Curtin Scholarship Program outcomes are sent early in November.
All successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application via the email they have provided through TISC.
Start the scholarship search early – get started on the process as soon as applications open to ensure your child has enough time to prepare their application
Encourage your child to apply for all of the scholarships they are eligible for – students will not be offered more than one scholarship, however applying for all relevant scholarships will increase your child’s opportunities for receiving a scholarship
Encourage your child to participate in activities outside of the classroom – if your child is looking to apply for a merit or leadership based scholarship, we look for well-rounded students who are involved in activities and programs that are meaningful to them (not just the required community service hours through school)
For information about the other merit based scholarships available, go to the filter search here.
The StepUp Bonus grants an adjustment factor of five additional ATAR points based on their high school, making applicants eligible to be considered for admission into Curtin courses. If your child is eligible for the StepUp Bonus, their ATAR will be adjusted accordingly.
This bonus is considered with the Curtin Excellence Scholarship.
Students may only receive one scholarship offer in an offer round. If they qualify for two scholarships, they will be offered the scholarship of higher value.
There are also a large range of scholarships available for students once they become a current Curtin student. These scholarships open in October each year and close in March. Further information about these scholarships can be found on the scholarships website.
Offers for the Principal’s Recommendation Award are released after course offers in mid-January 2021.
The Principal’s Recommendation Award is funded through Curtin. Students who are nominated by their high school must meet the eligibility criteria in order to receive an offer for the Award.
Students who receive an offer for the Curtin Excellence Scholarship and were also nominated for the Principal’s Recommendation Award will only receive an offer for the Curtin Excellence Scholarship.
