James Cook University Brisbane recognises exceptional academic effort by students by offering a scholarship-based Academic Excellence Award system which runs over a three trimester period. Students can first qualify for the Academic Excellence Award recognition after the completion of their first trimester of study. All awards are made in the trimester following the trimester in which the student qualifies.
Students maintaining an average GPA of 6.0 or above at the end of their second & third trimesters, will qualify for a payment, which is made to the student’s account to offset tuition fees in the following trimester. Students’ achievements of academic excellence are acknowledged at an official award ceremony held each trimester on the University Campus.
Students maintaining an average GPA of 6.0 – 6.49 at the end of their fourth trimester, receive a Silver JCUB Campus medal and an official Commendation document signed by Campus Executive.
Those Students who have maintained an average GPA of 6.5 or above at the end of their fourth trimester, receive a Gold Campus Medal and an official Commendation document signed by Campus Executive.
|Student’s trimester||Required GPA range||Scholarship value||Trimester awarded||JCUB Medal & Commendation Letter|
|Second||6.5 & above||$1000||Third||N/A|
|Third||6.5 & above||$1000||Fourth||N/A|
This Academic Excellence Award Scholarship is only available at the Brisbane Campus.
