Scholarship opportunities

Do you have a disability and are currently studying at TAFE or university?

Or perhaps are you thinking about embarking on tertiary studies, but are worried about managing the extra costs and logistics.

Having a disability doesn’t have to be a barrier to reaching your educational goals. Financial assistance from one of Northcott’s tertiary scholarship programs might be just the support you are looking for.

Each year we proudly invite people with disability to apply for one or more of the scholarships below.

  • use a wheelchair as a primary form of mobility;
