Department of Education Scholarships

The Department of Education is committed to helping children succeed in school. As part of this commitment, we coordinate a number of financial scholarships, grants and prizes for young people in secondary school so they can focus on achieving their education goals. Our current scholarships, grants and prizes with their respective values, eligibility requirements and closing dates are listed below.

All applications (except for Olive A Lewis Scholarships) must be submitted online. A guide to using our online forms is located at the bottom of this page. Further information on eligibility, assessment and supporting documents is in each application form. We recommend you print the relevant application form to use as a checklist before starting your application online, as application progress cannot be saved before submitting.

Once you have submitted an application, you will be sent an automatic confirmation email. Please check your spam or junk folder if you do not receive this email.

All scholarships are assessed by a selection committee and applicants are advised of the outcome by email during Term 1 2018.
