Recent grades Past and present CDU students: You will have your grades and academic transcript added to your application by CDU. New CDU students: If you have studied in the past, we recommend that you provide a copy of your most recent grades as an attachment to your application. You can provide grades from high school, previous university study and/or TAFE/VET courses. If you do not have any grades to provide, you may wish to add certificates or any other achievements. Other information Some scholarships require other information. For example, the Carbine Club Sports Scholarship requires your involvement in club or state-level sports, therefore a letter from your coach will support your application. The ConocoPhillips SPIRIT Scholarship requires you to address their SPIRIT values as well as provide a written statement. To find out what other information might be required, read the terms and conditions of each scholarship on the CDU website. If you are unsure about your eligibility for a certain scholarship, contact the Scholarships Officer on (08) 8946 6442 for clarification. Your written statement Aim to write a maximum of 1000 words for your written statement. Remember, the panel may have a lot of applications to read, so keep it as concise as possible. When writing your statement, you need to think about the following points: > What does the panel require? > What is the panel looking for in a recipient? > Who is giving the scholarship and what is their background/purpose? > Tell the panel about yourself (as long as you keep it relevant). > Give them something extra. 1110 Daniel Murdoch CDU was my university of choice as it offers internal and external modes of study which fits in with my travel and other future plans. I was successful in receiving the Newmont Tanami Indigenous Scholarship. This will assist with my study and textbook costs but most of all it will give me genuine experience working on a mine site. I would definitely recommend applying for the scholarship as it provides financial support and industry experience which will be essential for future career opportunities. 1110
