How to apply
A new streamline application process
This year we are excited to introduce a new secure online process for submitting applications for DBF scholarships. Applications can be submitted via the Smartygrants platform, which is administered by Equity Trustees. To apply, please follow this link https://equitytrustees.smartygrants.com.au/burgessawards.
Smartygrants will assist your school by making applications for DBF scholarships more accessible, streamlined and secure.
Details regarding the criteria and process for applying for scholarships can all be found on the Smartygrants site.
Applications for 2019 scholarships have now opened and close on 31 October, 2018.
Applications for the award must be made by the relevant state school, NOT the student.
A short list of applicants will be drawn up early in January, students and schools notified and interviews conducted as soon as possible afterwards. The winner and the Principals of all the school who have submitted applications will be notified of the results by late January or early February.
