Scholarships and prizes

La Trobe University offers its students access to a large pool of scholarships and awards and prizes each year. Some scholarships are offered university-wide, others are offered to students of a particular course, college or campus. Scholarships are designed to encourage and support all kinds of students.

It’s Worth Applying

You'd be surprised at how many applicants succeed! Scholarships are designed to encourage and support all kinds of students. While some scholarships are awarded for academic merit, many are specifically for students who are experiencing financial difficulties, or who come from particular communities. Bendigo has a number of scholarships that are open only to students from the region.

Bendigo Campus Prize Ceremony

To celebrate and congratulate Scholarship and Prize recipients, the Bendigo Campus Prize Ceremony is held in late July at the Ulumbarra Theatre each year. This is an opportunity to bring together our generous donors, our academic staff and our student recipients to celebrate their success. The University is proud to be able to recognise academic achievement and to draw well deserved attention to the donors of prizes for their significant role in encouraging excellence in our students.
