Round 11 Application Process (Yrs 10 and 11 in 2019):

May 2019

Queensland secondary schools notified of the impending Round 11 QATSIF Scholarships via an email sent to each school's general email address and any QATSIF contacts.

June 19 - Aug 23 2019

Interested schools apply online for scholarships on behalf of their students. Multiple reminder emails will be sent out to all secondary schools. The link to the application can be found on the QATSIF website.

Oct - Nov 2019

The QATSIF Board of Advice assesses applications and makes recommendations to the Public Trustee of Queensland.

Dec 2019

Schools notified of scholarship outcomes. Successful schools will be sent an email (to the nominated email address in their school's application) with a QATSIF agreement. QATSIF requires that the principal of the school signs the agreement and emails a copy of the agreement to QATSIF for signing by the Public Trustee. Each school agrees to spend the QATSIF QCE Scholarship for the educational benefit of each individual applicant.

Feb 2020

Scholarships become operational and schools may now begin submitting their QATSIF claim forms found within their QATSIF agreement. A claim form must be submitted by the school every semester for the duration of the scholarship in order to claim for funds spent on each applicant.

Jan - Feb 2022

Schools complete an online acquittal on:

  • funds spent.

  • each student’s post school destinations.

  • each student’s educational outcomes.

  • statistical data and anecdotal evidence of changes to the educational outcomes for the school’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
