About this scholarship

Description/Applicant information

The Euroz Securities Scholarship aims to support students enrolled in the Western Australia School of Mines, either in an undergraduate or post-graduate degree.

The Euroz Group has been a beneficiary of strong investment markets and a strong local economy since its inception in 2000. This prompted us to consider ways in which we could make a contribution to the broader community. As a result the Euroz Charitable Foundation was formed in 2007. The Foundation represents our ongoing commitment to the Western Australian community.

Taxation

Generally scholarship money paid to full-time students is not treated as taxable income, but if your study load is less than 75 credits (part-time) your scholarship money is not tax exempt. Other than the full-time study requirement, the general rule is that scholarships are exempt from taxation unless:

  • it is a condition of the scholarship that a recipient is required to undertake activities that are of use, help or benefit to the scholarship provider - then the student is rendering a service by agreeing to undertake those activities;
  • during or upon completion of the degree for which the scholarship is awarded a candidate is required to become, or shall continue to be, an employee of the funding body; or
  • an award is received by a student where the scholarship is not provided principally for educational purposes.

The Australian Tax Office has a tool to help you determine if your scholarship is taxable.  For expert advice please contact the Australian Taxation Office or your accountant when completing your annual Tax Return.  If a letter regarding your scholarship is required for taxation purposes, please contact the Scholarships Office.
