Explore scholarship possibilities

TAFE NSW is committed to ensuring that every person has access to education and training opportunities. Everyone, regardless of their circumstances or background, deserves the opportunity to build their future. We offer a range of scholarships to assist future students and students who may be experiencing barriers to their learning and scholarships to enhance the education experience by providing educational incentives.

A scholarship can provide you with financial assistance to help you meet all or part of your course fees and expenses, learning materials or study costs, or provide you with the opportunity to engage in an industry work placement.

Scholarships are available from a variety of sources, including government departments, businesses as well as other organisations. To find out more about some of the different scholarships available click on the links below or visit the TAFE NSW website.
