Flinders University Student Access Scholarships Rules


The University has established the Flinders University Student Access Scholarships to provide financial support students from low SES backgrounds who are commencing their first year of undergraduate study at Flinders University.

Subject to the availability of funds, scholarships will be available for the first year of study at Flinders University and will be worth $5,000.


All Scholarship applicants must be:

  • Australian citizens; and
  • commencing the first year of study in their first undergraduate degree at Flinders University in 2020; and
  • enrolled full-time at Flinders University; and
  • eligible for, or in receipt of, a Commonwealth Income Support payment, or;
  • be able to demonstrate financial hardship; and
  • seeking, or have gained, admission to their course on the basis of their ATAR, VET qualification, Foundation Studies or Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT).


The scholarship is awarded for the 2020 academic year.  The scholarship will be paid in two equal instalments, after the census date of each semester.  These payments are subject to the student maintaining a full-time study load.


Eligible scholarship applicants will be ranked in accordance with their entry score relevant to their pathway to Flinders. 

Applicants who can demonstrate that they have been affected, either directly or indirectly, by the recent and ongoing bushfires will be given priority, having met all other selection criteria.

Scholarships will be awarded within each of the entry pathways.


Applications should be submitted online through the Flinders University Student System by the closing date.


The availability of the scholarship will be described on the University website.
