What is the John Curtin Scholarship Program?

The John Curtin Scholarship Program (JCSP) is Curtin's most prestigious scholarship program for future students commencing their degree. It is awarded to academically talented students who have excelled in a wide range of endeavours, and have lent their talents and energies to the community around them.

Scholarships within the Program:

  • John Curtin Undergraduate Scholarship
  • Julia Gillard Women in Leadership Scholarship

These scholarships cover the cost of undergraduate education at Curtin University and provide an annual stipend of $2,000 per year, plus a one off payment of $6,000 for an approved international experience.

Scholars work together and individually on a number of community projects, to encourage a sense of community outside and within the university.

To be eligible to apply, you need to be either a:

  1. Current Year 12 student who is certified by your Principal to be in the top five per cent of your high school graduating year, and has given time and leadership to the community; or
  2. Mature age person who has not previously undertaken a university degree, be nominated by an appropriate educator (who can verify your academic excellence), and who has given time and leadership to the community.
