The award is available each year to a prospective Australian National University student who satisfies the following criteria:
- is a domestic student
- receives an offer of admission to an undergraduate degree program offered by the University
- whose ability to study at university will be affected, or is likely to be affected, by the long-term and ongoing effects of one of the following:
- a severe and long-term (or a severe and recurrent) medical/psychiatric condition or illness
- a learning, sensory, physical, psychological, or other disability/disorder
- trauma or abuse
Selection is made on the basis of applicants meeting the eligibility criteria and then ranked according to their ANU Selection Rank.
How to apply
All applicants applying for admission to ANU through the direct Admission Scholarship and Accommodation Application will be automatically considered for the award based on them meeting the eligibility criteria and electing to be considered for scholarships.
