I'm still trying to find a scholarship that will fit my criteria as a lot of them seem to fit school leavers more than non standard students. With regards to whether Griffith need to be listed as first preference to get a scholarship, I don't remember exactly where I read it (could actually have been here on MSO), but they did state that if one wanted a scholarship they would have to list Griffith as first preference.I have a feeling the scholarships that follow these rules are just the two major ones (The Sir Samuel Griffith scholarships) which are only open to school-leavers, but I definitely don't know that for sure. Which scholarships are you applying for as a non-standard, if you don't mind me asking? Does Griffith publicise anywhere that they need to be listed as a first preference? I'd imagine scholarships are assigned to applicants ahead of the offers release date (I believe the Sir Samuel Griffith scholarships are, anyways), so you'd need to have Griffith listed as first preference ahead of whatever that date is (assuming it hasn't already happened). Whether they will be able to view your preference history, though, I am unsure of.
