Answer

How will my scholarship affect my Centrelink payments?

If you receive a Centrelink payment, you need to declare any scholarships you are awarded to Centrelink. Your scholarship may impact your Centrelink payments. For advice, please contact Centrelink directly. Please use your Curtin student ID as the scholarship reference number.

If you need a letter about your scholarship for Centrelink, contact the Scholarships Office.

Commonwealth scholarships are not assessed as income for social security purposes.

If you are a full-time student, any money paid by the University towards your fees (student contribution) is not considered as income.
