Navitas bursaries and scholarships

Navitas family bursaries

Navitas offers financial support in the form of family bursaries. A bursary applies where two or more students from the same family study with a Navitas member institution.*

The bursary is equivalent to 10 percent of the tuition fee of your program of study (certificate, diploma, University Transfer Program (UTP), University Pathways Program, bachelor's degree, pre-master's program, postgraduate qualifying program or master's degree).†

Do I qualify?

Has your husband, wife, brother, sister, mother, father, son, daughter or stepchild previously studied at, or are they currently studying at, a Navitas member institution*? If yes, then you may qualify!

How do I apply?

Pick up an application from the Navitas institution where you have enrolled and submit together with supporting documents such as a birth certificate or family card. These documents will vary depending on the country where you plan to study.

How will I receive my bursary?

If you qualify, then 10 percent of your tuition fee will be credited to your account each academic term. This amount will vary based on the number of units being undertaken. Note that the bursary applies to the first program of study and does not apply to additional units or repeat units that may also be undertaken.

Navitas academic merit scholarships


Navitas is committed to helping you achieve your career goals by offering scholarships to outstanding students.

Each term, Navitas colleges* award two students with academic merit scholarships.

What does a scholarship include?

Fees for one academic term‡ (or part thereof) at a Navitas member institution for:

  • a diploma, advanced diploma or associate degree (Australia)
  • UTP Stage II or associate degree (Canada)
  • UPP or IUTP (United States)
  • undergraduate pathway program (United Kingdom); or
  • one semester of undergraduate study at ACN, Curtin University Sydney, Curtin Singapore or Macquarie city campus; or
  • one semester of a master's program at Curtin University Sydney, Curtin Singapore or Macquarie city campus.

How do I apply?

There is no need to apply -- all full time enrolled students are automatically eligible!

The scholarship is based on academic performance -- the two students with the highest GPA in four or more subjects or courses will each receive a scholarship.

If you are successful, you will be notified by mail once end of term results are released. The names of successful students will also be posted on the college website.

How will I receive my scholarship?

Scholarships are applied to the tuition fee‡ for the second term of enrolment only or the final semester of study in an undergraduate or postgraduate program.
