The Juris Doctor (JD) Scholarship for Indigenous Students was established to assist high achieving Indigenous students to undertake the Juris Doctor Program at UNSW.

UNSW Scholarships work in partnership with the Office of the PVC Indigenous and Nura Gili, Centre for Indigenous Programs. While Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identity is unique and sacred to every person, UNSW scholarships for Indigenous students will require proof of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander identity and heritage. If you have not already provided proof of identity and heritage to Nura Gili, any Indigenous specific scholarship offer made by UNSW Scholarships will be conditional upon receipt of proof of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander heritage to Nura Gili as outlined on the Nura Gili website. For more information, please visit: Confirmation of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Descent


Recipients will need to meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Be an Indigenous Australian (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander only).
  • Undertaking the Juris Doctor program at UNSW as a commencing or current student in Term 3, 2024.


Recipients will be selected on the basis of:

  • Academic merit;
  • Community and leadership achievement and potential (including, if applicable, engagement with Nura Gili and/or equivalent university programs and services);
  • Commitment to studying for a Juris Doctor at UNSW.

You must provide evidence supporting the above criteria in your online application. Please refer to the Scholarship Application Supporting Documents for a detailed list of examples.

Unanswered application questions or claims without supporting documentation will not be assessed. Late applications/supporting documentation will not be accepted.

UNSW reserves the right not to award a scholarship, where there is no applicant of sufficient merit, or if the applicant does not meet the scholarship eligibility and/or selection criteria.
