CDU scholarships

CDU scholarships are sponsored by individuals, businesses, government, community groups and the University to assist students with the financial burden of studying.

We offer scholarships in many categories. Some scholarships give the opportunity to participate in paid work experience during semester breaks.  Scholarships are open to all students currently enrolled at CDU or have applied for a place at CDU.
