Apply for a $5,000 Scholarship

Imagine starting your TAFE Queensland journey with $5,000 in your pocket. We are offering 100 scholarships to Australians looking to create a brighter future through vocational education and training.

Now open for applications until 30 September 2024 -  TAFE Queensland Scholarships award recipients $5,000 to study any Certificate III through to an Advanced Diploma or Bachelor Degree from over 60 campuses locations across Queensland or online.

This initiative aims to support students in achieving their educational and career goals without the financial burden. Each scholarship is designed to help cover the costs of course fees, textbooks, and living expenses. 

TAFE Queensland Chief Executive Officer John Tucker acknowledges the transformative power of these scholarships.

“We know the power vocational education and training has to change people’s lives and we want to help people fulfil their career potential regardless of their circumstances,” Mr Tucker said.

“First launched in 2015, the TAFE Queensland Scholarship Program has awarded over $3.05million in scholarships; helping more than 640 Queenslanders pursue their career goals.

“There are two types of scholarships available, one being Merit scholarships aimed at supporting people who have demonstrated strong levels of achievement to advance their careers. The second are Access and Equity scholarships which are designed to help students who are battling social or financial hardship,” he said.

To be eligible, applicants must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident and must commence study in Semester 1, 2025 or be an existing TAFE Queensland first year apprentice at the time of submitting the application.

“Scholarships can be life-changing for students, and TAFE Queensland is incredibly grateful for the support of organisations who generously donate each year to the TAFE Queensland Foundation which funds our scholarships program,” Mr Tucker said. 

“This year, with support from organisations including RACQ, CPL – Choice Passion Life, Community Bank Samford part of Bendigo Bank, Exemplar Health, Microsoft ,MEGT, Australian Refrigeration Council, Orro, Australian Maritime Safety Authority and Queensland Hydro who donate to the TAFE Queensland Foundation, we are helping 100 students to change their lives and achieve their career aspirations,” he said.    

With an average of 1000 applications received each year, Mr Tucker said he encourages anyone looking to start their career or make a career change to apply now.

“Whether you’re leaving school, considering a career change or looking to upskill, all Queenslanders are urged to apply,” he said.
