NEW scholarships - Second round applications close 3 Feb
We offer three new BusinessPLUS scholarship categories this year, which seek to reward potential as well as excellence - so it’s worthwhile investigating whether you might qualify to receive one. Scholarships can cover tuition fees, education and living expenses. You can apply if you are coming straight from year 12, or if you have left high school and are applying to start an undergraduate university degree. They add to over 600 scholarships available at Griffith. You can also apply for multiple scholarships with just one application; we’ll match you with the Griffith University scholarship you are eligible for and it's free.
