There are three stages to the Tuckwell application:

Stage 1 – opens on 1 March 2023 and closes on 12 April 2023

Stage 1 asks you for personal details and information on your academic and extra-curricular activities. If, after submission, you are longlisted in Stage 1, we will seek further information from your Head of Year or equivalent.

Your Head of Year or equivalent will only need to supply this information if contacted by the program. This information will be taken into account to determine the 150 candidates who will progress to Stage 2.

Stage 2 – opens 15 May 2023 and closes 26 May 2023

Stage 2 asks longer questions that give the Selection Panel insight into who you are in addition to your achievements.

It also includes a reference from your Principal. Your principal will be contacted by the program and will need to supply their reference by the due date in May. This information will be taken into account to determine the 50 candidates who will progress to Stage 3.

Stage 3 – held 7-9 July 2023

Traditionally, Stage 3 is an in-person interview at ANU. Precise details will be sent to shortlisted candidates in mid-June.

In the interview, the Selection Panel will get to know you, including how you best demonstrate the Tuckwell attributes and your connection and commitment to Australia.

The final selection of candidates is based on individual fit but also a selection of a balanced and diverse cohort of students. This information will be taken into account to determine the 25 Tuckwell Scholars for 2024.
