(Invite only) Out of Round Tuition Fee Scholarships

Tuition Fee Scholarships (TFS) require Supervisor, School or Faculty funding, so it is recommended you discuss potential stipend funding with your supervisor.

TFSs are generally considered within the main scholarship round, however applicants may be invited to apply for an Out of Round (OOR) TFS in the following instances:

  • some specialist programs. Successful applicants will be emailed invitation letters to apply for the OOR TFS. If applying for specialist scholarships, applicants need to check the conditions and deadlines of the specific scholarship.

  • if your supervisor has appropriate stipend funding, they may invite you to apply for an OOR TFS

In both cases, applicants must be invited to apply, and must be eligible per the above Policy and Procedure. Applicants applying for an OOR TFS won’t be eligible to be considered for any other scholarships.
