About the Grants


Most Cowan Grants go to students from rural or regional backgrounds because they are faced with higher costs caused by distance from their centre of Tertiary Study. Many students qualify for Centrelink payments, though some do not because of capital assets of their parents. Most Cowan Grants are given to students intending to study in Adelaide at University, but there are grants for UniSA Mount Gambier and JCU students in rural Queensland.


The Trustees give funds each year to the organisations listed below. These organisations then call for applications or nominations and select students for scholarships or grants. Each organisation has different scholarships or grants. Read the following pages for details and contacts.
