EIT Academic Excellence Scholarship

EIT awards the Academic Excellence Scholarship to currently enrolled students on the basis of academic performance as measured by cumulative GPA (or Weighted Average Mark where two or more applicants have the same cumulative GPA). These scholarships are highly competitive and highly regarded as they reflect the academic best at EIT. Scholarship recipients will have the opportunity to represent EIT at academic, community and promotional events.

There are up to three scholarships available in Semester 1 & 2 (one each for on-campus and online undergraduate courses and one for on-campus postgraduate courses(except DEng)), and one scholarship available in Term 1 & 3 for online postgraduate courses.

This scholarship awards a 10% discount on tuition fees for the next semester* to the highest academic performance in each course type (undergraduate and postgraduate) in each mode of delivery (online and on-campus) as measured by cumulative GPA (or Weighted Average Mark where two or more applicants have the same cumulative GPA).

As Academic Excellence Scholarships are awarded based on your academic results, the actual scholarship selection made by the EIT Scholarship panel is not confirmed until you have completed the previous teaching period and all results have been released.

Please do not let this stop you from applying; you do not have to wait until the release of your academic results as we can apply scholarships retrospectively and refund any difference in tuition fees due if you are successful.
