COVID-19: Changes to Tuckwell Applications

19 March 2020

In light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and in recognition of the unprecedented challenges facing school students and teaching staff, the due date for Tuckwell Scholarship applications has been extended by 7 weeks. Also, the Stage 3 in-person interviews will not take place in Canberra in July 2020.

New Dates for Tuckwell Scholarship Applications

Candidate Stage 1 Application Due - 3PM AEST Monday 25 May 2020

Teacher & Head of Year References Due – 3PM AEST 1 June 2020

Notification of Stage 1 outcomes – July 2020

Short-listed candidates who progress to Stage 2 will be invited to participate in a video interview in July 2020. The principal references will also be due in July 2020. The exact Stage 2 dates will be confirmed in due course.

Conditional offers for study at ANU (Degree, Scholarship & Accommodation) will be made by ANU on 10 August 2020.

Up to 75 short-listed candidates from Stage 2 will receive conditional ANU All-Rounder Scholarship offers on 10 August 2020.

If it is possible at the time, we will conduct the Stage 3 in-person interviews over the 2020/2021 summer after which up to 25 of the 75 short-listed candidates will be offered a Tuckwell Scholarship to commence study at ANU in Semester 1, 2021. Flexible arrangements will be made to accommodate the travel constraints for interview candidates on a case-by-case basis. 

We will continue to monitor the (COVID-19) situation and may introduce additional changes to this year's Tuckwell Scholarship application process in response to directives from the relevant authorities.

We will advise applicants of any changes that are made to the application process or timelines via email and our website.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
