Am I eligible?

From 2017, the Hallmark Program will be available to recipients of the Vice-Chancellor’s Excellence Scholarship. Students who receive this scholarship are automatically enrolled in the Hallmark Program so there is no requirement to make a separate application. Hallmark staff will contact these students after enrolment to arrange their first academic mentoring session.

Already studying at La Trobe?

From 2018, students who have completed first year will be eligible to apply to join the Hallmark Program. There is a competitive selection process based on a combination of academic merit and a demonstrated interest in leadership and teamwork.

To apply you must:

  • Have completed at least 120 credit points of your course
  • Have a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) in first year of 75 or higher
  • Be willing to attend an interview if short-listed for the Program
  • Provide a two-page written statement about your interest in developing leadership, research and/or professional skills.

Students who join the Hallmark Program in their second year are not eligible for the Vice-Chancellor’s Excellence Scholarship. However, they will enjoy the same access to staff and enrichment opportunities as those who join the Hallmark Program in first year.
