About scholarships

At the University of Melbourne, we are all different.

We come from different places – from the inner cities to the Kimberley, and from over 140 different countries – to make Melbourne home.

We have different passions and ambitions. Some of us want to see beyond the stars; some of us are working to save what’s precious here on Earth. Some of us are driven to create new worlds in art. The one thing we all have in common is a passion for changing what’s possible, and we know we can only do that together.

That’s why our community offers a huge variety of scholarships. Here are some ideas to get your search started.

Take your first steps to success.

Build your resume.

We have hundreds of prizes that are designed to reward hard work and achievement as you move through your course. From your first year in undergraduate study. through internships and all the way through to your PhD, you can win prizes that will help you concentrate on your studies. These prizes won’t just help you while you study – they’ll become an integral part of your CV.

Take your place in the world.

Our ‘Melbourne Model’ is structured for international flexibility, and we send over 1300 students abroad each year on semester, year or short term intensive programs. Graduate students can seek funding for their research overseas, to engage in and publish research, or to engage with colleagues at key conferences.

When life gives you lemons…

Life isn’t always easy, but that shouldn’t stop you. Bursaries are available for a variety of needs and can ease the financial pressures of uni so you can focus on your studies. You can get help for housing, buying your textbooks, and other items as needed.
