Design scholarships at Torrens University

We want to help you connect with like-minded people to make the world of design a better, more efficient place. To help you get to where you want to be in life, we offer design scholarships to support your study plans.

Design with purpose

Thinkers, problem-solvers and rule-breakers. They’re the people we’re looking for, and if you’re not already one of them, we can help encourage you to start taking risks and being bold as you spring into a design career… with the help of our design scholarships, which offer a reduction in your total tuition fees. As part of our deeply engrained connection to industry and shared love of watching emerging designers flourish, we’ve teamed up with some of Australia’s leading brands to give the next generation of creatives the opportunity of a lifetime.
