There are a large number of scholarships available for commencing students, and not all are for the best and brightest.
Curtin also provides scholarship support to students who come from families experiencing financial hardship.
There is an advanced search function on the scholarships website which allows you to search for scholarships based on selected criteria.
Curtin University funds this award which allows each West Australian high school principal to nominate two students. Students can be nominated on any of the below criteria:
This Award is not provided in conjunction with any other scholarship offer from Curtin, so students who are nominated for the Principal’s Recommendation Award and qualify for the Curtin Excellence Scholarship will only receive the Principal’s Recommendation Award. For this reason we allow principals to nominate up to two reserve students.
Many schools wish to congratulate their nominated students during their own awards night – please be mindful that until scholarship offers are released by Curtin, students receive a nomination only, not the award itself.
