The Commonwealth Government offers a significant number of scholarships each year for Indigenous students studying at the University of Adelaide through Commonwealth income support scholarships. The scholarships are to assist Indigenous students from low socio-economic backgrounds, particularly those from rural and regional areas, with the costs associated with higher education.

Please note, scholarship recipients must not concurrently hold an Indigenous Commonwealth Accommodation Scholarship with a Relocation Scholarship or a Residential Costs Option from Centrelink. Students must not have already accepted a Relocation Scholarship or a Residential Costs Option from Centrelink, or if they have already accepted a Relocation Scholarship or Residential Costs Option from Centrelink they must notify Centrelink that they wish to rescind the acceptance and repay any funds paid from the Relocation Scholarship or a Residential Costs Option.
