Scholarships and prizes

La Trobe University offers its students access to a large pool of scholarships and prizes each year.

Visit the Scholarships site for information on scholarships and application details. Visit the Awards and Prizes site to search for prizes that are available to Shepparton students (both new and current).

Some scholarships are offered university-wide. Others are offered to students of a particular course, college or campus. Many scholarships are for students starting their first year in a course, while others are for students in subsequent years. There are prizes and awards for leading students in particular areas.

It's worth applying

You'd be surprised at how many applicants succeed! 

Scholarships are designed to encourage and support all kinds of students. People often assume scholarships are awarded for academic merit, but many are specifically for students who are experiencing financial difficulties, or who come from particular communities. Shepparton has some scholarships open only to students from the region.

Have a look at the eligibility criteria, and if you're not sure if you should apply, contact Campus Reception.
