Your guide to Bond University scholarships

Every semester, Bond University awards full-fee and part-fee scholarships to the best and brightest future Bondies from around the globe. The scholarship program features a range of scholarships for high-achieving students in academia, leadership, community and sport, with Bond scholarship recipients going on to achieve incredible things in their chosen fields.

Thinking about applying? We’re here to help you decide if you’re eligible, learn where to start, and guide you through the application and award process.

Finding the scholarship for you.

The first step is considering the scholarships on offer. Review our website and check the eligibility criteria against each scholarship to check what you are eligible to apply for. Remember, we encourage you to apply for as many scholarships as you are eligible for, so keep a note of those that match your skills or experiences.

It’s important that you speak to your parents and school about your scholarship application. Let them know you are applying and ask them if they agree with your scholarship choices.

Start your study application first.

You can’t start your scholarship application until you have fully submitted your program application, so get online and start your program application straight away. Scholarship applications open on 1 May. We suggest you start as soon as possible and encourage you to explore the form and check what is required by the relevant scholarship application closing date.

Prepare your submission and supporting documents.

Depending on the scholarship you have decided to apply for, you may be asked to provide specific supporting documents or write an essay. Documents should be uploaded in the relevant section of the scholarship application form. All High School Leavers will also be asked to provide their Career Advisor’s details so we can contact them directly for a reference.

Tip: We recommend drafting essay responses in a Word document and then copying them into the application form when you are ready. This will allow you to check your word count, spelling and grammar before submitting your final responses.

Want some more advice for your scholarship applications? Here are our four top tips. 

Do a final check before submitting your application.

Make sure you proofread your application. Check your spelling and grammar and ensure you have attached everything that is required. Once you have submitted your application you cannot make any changes, so take the time to check it over.

Now, it’s time to submit.

Once you are ready, it’s time to submit your application. You will receive a confirmation email once you have successfully submitted your scholarship application. If you don’t receive confirmation, contact us so we can double check. You must submit your scholarship application by the relevant closing date, as late scholarship applications will not be considered. If you are applying for more than one scholarship with different application closing dates, it is important to submit your scholarship application form by the earliest scholarship closing date.

Check your email regularly. We will be sending you important information and reminders throughout the process. We are here to help so if you have any questions email [email protected].

What’s next?

Take a deep breath… the hard work is done. We will send you further details with the next steps, depending on the scholarship (or scholarships) you have applied for, and will keep you updated on the progress of your application. Make sure you put any key dates we provide you with in your calendar, and most importantly, good luck!
