How to apply for scholarships

Managing your finances at uni can present some challenges. Even with loans like HECS-HELP, the day-to-day living expenses and university costs can be overwhelming. This is where a scholarship can come in handy and alleviate some of the financial burdens that come with part-time or full-time study.

Students often don’t apply for scholarships as they believe the application process is too hard. Others believe they are not suitable for a scholarship when in reality they are eligible.

CQUni has made it super easy for students to apply for scholarships. Scholarships for Term 1 2022 are closing on 7 January.

From PASS Participants to PASS Leaders

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are peer led online study groups available in first year units identified as historically challenging for students. Sessions are facilitated by senior students who have recently received excellent grades in the unit and have completed nationally accredited training. Since Term 2 2018, PASS has supported nearly 2000 students.

As a program that prides itself on providing leadership opportunities by recruiting students who undergo nationally accredited training to plan and facilitate sessions, we often see students who have been regular PASS participants apply for the role of PASS Leader in later terms. Two such students are Kylie (PASS Leader since Term 1 2021) and El-Dez (PASS Leader since Term 2 2021).  

Keep reading to hear about the leadership opportunities PASS provides and why students should learn more about PASS.
