Scholarships

We offer our current and prospective students access to a large variety of scholarships, awards and prizes each year.

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

Scholarships are designed to encourage and support all kinds of students. Scholarships can be awarded for academic merit, but many are specifically for those who are experiencing financial difficulties, or who come from particular communities. We have a number of scholarships open for students only from regional areas also.

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

Financial support given to students while they're studying can make a world of difference. We're proud that our community partners make these opportunities happen.

I honestly didn’t think I would get the scholarship, I was so humbled by it as there are so many other deserving people, but I was encouraged to apply for it by the staff at my school and La Trobe University. I just told myself you’ve got to be in it to win it. I also received the VC’s Scholarship for my school. When I got the email to say I received the Destinations Australia Scholarship I was so surprised. When I told my mum she had to sit down. I can’t work at the moment so this will go a long way to helping me buy my own car.

I've been a type-one diabetic since I was four, so I've lived through the experience of paediatricians genuinely working for you and caring for you. This Inland Rail scholarship will give me future financial stability to get the best education I can, before putting my roots down in a regional area like Wodonga, where I am determined to become a paediatrics specialist. People need to be supported and encouraged to stay in their community to study and work, rather than having to move away in the hope they’ll one day return. Scholarships like this one offer that level of support to help keep local people in their hometowns once they leave school and begin their careers.
