Frequently asked questions:

How many scholarships will be offered?
At least two overall, across states and year levels.

How many times can you apply?
One time per user. Logically, the application you submit will be your best one.

On what basis are the scholarships awarded?
There are two question prompts:

Responses to these questions prompts will help inform the decision. Ultimately, it is up to our discretion.

How will recipients be notified?
All applicants, irrespective of whether they are awarded a scholarship or not, will be notified of the outcome via email.

Are these the only scholarships offered?
We will most likely also be offering academic scholarships - details to come.

If you apply for this scholarship but are unsuccessful, can you then apply for an academic scholarship?
Yes.

Can you apply even if you're not in Year 12 in 2020?
Yes, you may apply if you are in the Class of 2020 or younger. Please be aware that relevant subjects available may be fewer if you are in younger years.

Can current TuteSmart students apply?
Yes, if you are currently a TuteSmart member but would like to apply for a scholarship for the 2019/2020 program, that is fine.

Final words:
We are so excited to offer these TuteSmart scholarships, and we're looking forward to your application. Please remember that the application deadline is Friday 6 September, 2019. If you have any questions, please post them below. :)

Sure. At least one post on the forums. The more quality posts the better, given the criteria. :)

Thanks for your question, and welcome to ATAR Notes!

Hey just wondering how you select the member for the scholarship
Hey Ani, the recipient will be selected as per the faq:

On what basis are the scholarships awarded?
There are two question prompts:
(1) Describe how you have contributed to the ATAR Notes Forums/community.
(2) How will you benefit from a TuteSmart scholarship?

Responses to these questions prompts will help inform the decision. Ultimately, it is up to our discretion.

Hey Duristu,

Welcome to the forums!
I would recommend you include any note uploads in your response to question 1 :)

Bri has hit the nail on the head above, but just to confirm:

Can current year 12 students apply for this or is it only for those in Yr12 next year?

The Class of 2020 and younger may apply. :)

Hello  :D :D

Hello! Welcome to ATAR Notes. :)

Hey just wondering how you select the member for the scholarship

As Bri noted above, responses to the two main questions in the application form will form the basis for selection. Demonstrable contribution to ATAR Notes will help. :)

Hey, I was just wondering if posting subject notes also count?

You must have posted on the forums to qualify - but you've now done that! :)

Friends, time is running out! Please don't forget to submit your application. :) It could prove to be a hugely influential ten minutes!

Scholarship applications close in just two days.

Seriously, if you're in the VCE Class of 2020, 2021, or 2022, or the HSC Class of 2020 or 2021, I can't recommend applying more!

Hi there! Great question. Winners will be notified by email. In fact, all applicants will be contacted, irrespective of whether or not they were successful.

The process will, hopefully, be done in about a week (no promises on that, but fingers crossed!).

A week(ish) from when the applications closed?

Hi everybody!

I just want to take this opportunity to again thank everybody who applied for a scholarship. Honestly, there were many really excellent applications from many amazing (and very highly valued) forum members. As you can imagine, the decision was not easy.

Everybody who applied should have received an email by about 3.15pm today informing them of the outcome, whether they were successful or otherwise. If you do not receive this email, please let me know - a few email addresses seemed to have been rejected for whatever reason.

This community is genuinely incredible and I'm glad that we could provide these scholarships to three users. I hope they maximise value out of TuteSmart given the high number of applicants that applied.

Thank you one and all. Keep being awesome. 💙
