  • "This scholarship had an enormous positive impact on my life. I was able to reduce my working hours during the rest of the semester, giving me more time to study. As a result of the extra time I was able to dedicate to my studies, my academic performance improved drastically. Most notably, I submitted my thesis – something that I truly believe would have been impossible to achieve without the assistance of the Arts 110 Scholarship. Your generosity has made it possible for me to continue my studies at honours level and achieve things I never thought possible. This experience has enriched my life today and opened up career and study pathways in my future."
    - Rebecca Vannapraseuth

    The Faculty of Arts 110 Scholarship Fund

    Commemorating 110 years of the Faculty this Fund aims to ensure that an Arts degree continues to be accessible to all students, no matter their background.

    We want to ensure that as many students as possible are able to access a high quality Arts education at the University. We want to nurture a new generation of thinkers and leaders through The Faculty of Arts and we are committed to increasing access and equity and assisting students who may struggle to find the means to come to the University.

    It is for this very reason that we have established The Faculty of Arts 110 Scholarship Fund to increase support for those students who have demonstrated the skill and creative acumen to excel, but who struggle to afford a university education or are hampered by circumstances beyond their control. The Faculty of Arts 110 Scholarship Fund provides support for undergraduates and graduates who struggle financially, have relocated from rural areas and/or are Indigenous Australians.

    We welcome the recent support of Melbourne Arts Students Society (M-ASS)

What are the benefits?

Approximately $24,000. Several awards will be offered from this amount.
