Other scholarships

We’re all different; we come from different places with different passions and ambitions. That’s why we offer a huge variety of scholarships from those awarded on academic merit and some taking additional factors into account; others to help with your expenses in Melbourne and some to help you travel the globe. Wherever you are and whatever your passion, with a Melbourne scholarship you can turn ambition into achievement
