Through the generous support of corporate sponsors, and from other funds made available to the University, Bond offers a number of scholarships to Indigenous Australians.

These scholarships, valued up to 50% of tuition fees for any single undergraduate degree (excluding the Medical Program) or 100% tuition for any diploma program, are awarded to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander students who have demonstrated extracurricular involvement, leadership potential and academic achievements.

The Indigenous Scholarships are supported by generous alumni and community donations into the Ambition Fund.
