Applying is easy. For domestic students, you only need to submit one application form to be considered for most USC scholarships and bursaries.
The following application process will apply during the Semester 1 and Semester 2 scholarship application periods:
Simply log in to the ApplyUSC portal:
- If you don't have USC login details, create an account. You can apply for a scholarship before you receive your offer to study.
- If you are a new or continuing student, sign in using your USC username and password. Where you are asked for an application number, add your student ID number.
Complete and submit the application form, including the required supporting documentation and we will assess which scholarships you are eligible for.
