Applying for a scholarship
 

All applicants are required to complete the online Application Form (link only available when application round is open). You will be required to set up a site account. 

 

Within your account you can save, leave and go back to your application any time before submitting by the due date. Please be aware you will be required to upload supporting documents to this online form. We encourage applicants to download their application form as they go, and download the application form when they submit the finalized application, in case of any unanticipated technical difficulties. 


You will be notified of the results of your application by email approximately eight weeks after the closing date deadline, at which time selected applicants will receive further instruction.

Please note: We understand the AAA application and review period may cross over with the dates that some institutions require students to accept their placement/offer through paying a fee. Unfortunately the AAA cannot speed up the application review process and it is up to the applicant/student to accept their placement/offer and pay any required fees at that time.
