Each award has different rules and conditions. Scholarships that are sponsored by industry groups will often include a condition that prevents a student from holding another, similar scholarship. You should check the rules of the scholarship/s for which you are applying to see if there are any conditions attached.
Normally scholarships will be paid in twice-yearly instalments within a month of the semester 1 and the semester 2 census dates (subject to the recipient meeting the ongoing eligibility requirements of their award). Students are financially liable for any courses in which they are enrolled as at the semester census dates.
- Semester 1 census date: 31 March each year
- Semester 2 census date: 31 August each year
Scholarship payments are made via electronic funds transfer direct to your nominated bank account. Depending on the scholarship you have been awarded, you will either be sent an email from the Undergraduate Scholarships Office asking you to provide your banking details or you will be instructed to enter these on your mySI-net record.
Some scholarships for commencing students may be deferred for up to one year. Once commenced, approval to suspend a scholarship will normally only be given where there are exceptional circumstances preventing a student from studying in a semester (evidence will be required). Please check the conditions of your scholarship for further information or contact the Undergraduate Scholarships Office or email to email@example.com.
The majority of scholarships offered at UQ are intended to support full-time students (ie students enrolled in at least 6 units per semester). Approval to continue receiving payments while studying part-time may be granted only in exceptional circumstances and evidence in support of any such request will be required. Any changes to your semester study load should be reported to the Undergraduate Scholarships Office.
Undergraduate scholarships are not generally considered income for tax purposes. For more information on whether or not your scholarship is taxable please use the Australian Tax Office Scholarship decision tool.
Students are able to receive up to $7,310 in university scholarships before there is an impact on their Centrelink payments. However, ALL scholarships should still be reported to the Department of Human Services.
Students requiring a scholarship statement to provide to Centrelink should contact the Undergraduate Scholarships Office.
Some scholarships will require the recipient to remain enrolled in a specific program/s. Students in receipt of a scholarship that is not discipline-specific will generally be able to transfer to another program during the tenure of their scholarship. Students should check the scholarship rules and/or Terms and Conditions regarding any conditions pertaining to their award. Scholarship recipients should also notify the Undergraduate Scholarships Office if they make any changes at all to their study plans. Scholarships are not normally transferable between institutions.
A request to ‘show cause’ is sent to scholarship holders who have failed to meet any of the conditions of their award eg failed to achieve the required semester GPA, failing to remain enrolled in a full-time load etc.
Students who are sent a “show cause” notice should respond by the due date, providing an explanation of why they failed to meet the requirement and where possible, providing evidence which supports their claims eg if failure to meet the GPA requirement or F/T study load is due to medical reasons, then a letter from the treating practitioner should be provided.
