The Relocating Scholarship aims to support and encourage students who attend high school in rural and regional Australia to pursue undergraduate study at the University of Wollongong in 2021.

If you receive a UOW Early Admission offer for 2021 and completed your final studies (HSC, IB or equivalent) at a high school in rural or regional NSW, you will automatically be considered for a $5,000 rent discount for your first year in a UOW residence. There is no separate application to complete. As long as you meet these criteria and apply for your UOW accommodation by 13 November 2020, you are eligible to be considered for one of 24 scholarships. It's as easy as that.

In partnership with the Southern Districts Rugby Club, UOW offers the Southern Districts Club Scholarship Scheme. The scheme provides a range of scholarships to UOW students who are representing the Southern Districts Rugby Club.

An accommodation scholarship valued at $12,000 will be offered, along with a number of other scholarships ranging between $3,000-$4,000. The accommodation scholarship recipient can have their scholarship paid towards accommodation costs at a UOW residence or paid via direct deposit.

The Southern Districts Rugby Club Scholarship Scheme supports students' study at UOW. Eligible students must have already received an unconditional offer for a UOW course or be enrolled at UOW. Scholars must maintain full-time enrolment for the duration of the scholarship.
