East Carolina University(ECU) Inspiring Minds Equity Scholarship

ECU is committed to attracting and supporting the best students, regardless of their socio-economic status. In order that financial position provides no barrier to those who want to study we want to offer more scholarships to allow students the opportunity to study. They include students from low socio-economic backgrounds, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander’s, people with a disability or ongoing illness, people with significant caring responsibilities and those from rural or regional areas of Australia who can demonstrate academic achievement in their current ECU course. The scholarship offers payments of $1,500 per semester for a maximum of 2 semesters and $3,000.
