Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Scholarship

For rural and regional students

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Scholarship for rural and regional students

Applications for 2021 scholarships will open 1 December 2020.

Successful recipients will be notified by 31 March 2021.

What else do I need to know?

Let's get started by looking at the things you need to know now.

  • This Scholarship is for students living in rural and regional Australia.
  • Any subject can be studied under this scholarship provided that it is at undergraduate bachelor’s degree level in an approved Australian course.
  • You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
  • Only first-time, first year university students wishing to study full-time in 2021 can apply.
  • You must demonstrate the disadvantage (economic and/or social) hindering your ability to undertake further study.
Fast facts
  • Accommodation? Yes, it's covered. This scholarship supports accommodation costs, reducing the financial burden of paying rent.
  • Study resources? Books and computers are a must for you to get through your studies, so it makes sense for these must-have items to be covered.
  • How much? The scholarship award value is $5,000 per year.
  • How long? The scholarship covers one full year of study but, depending on your academic performance, it may be renewed for a second year.
  • Deferring? Scholarship funds cannot be put on lay-by so if you're planning a gap year you'll have to wait to apply.
  • Mature age? Only secondary school leavers graduated in 2020 or 2019 (taken a gap year) can apply for this scholarship.
  • Started another course? This scholarship is for first time tertiary students only.
  • Work part-time? The study and work life balance can be quite a juggle and we know that part-time work is essential to get by, so provided that you're studying full-time, this scholarship is for you.
