At VU, we understand how important education is in enabling students to achieve their full potential, and how access to a scholarship can help make that happen.
Each year, VU awards hundreds of scholarships to students at all levels – TAFE (certificates and diplomas), undergraduate (bachelor degrees and honours), and postgraduate, providing financial and practical assistance for students to get a head start.

More than just a scholarship
First-year VU Bachelor of Paramedicine student and Werribee resident, Alannah Nix, 19, first received the Western Chances scholarship eight years ago while a student at Hoppers Crossing Secondary School. Both Alannah’s older sisters – one now a teacher in Queensland, and the other a nurse in Melbourne’s west – were also recipients.
“Western Chances helped each of us get to where we are now,” she said on the support they each received.
“They don’t just provide money, they gave us connections to a great community, and to personal and professional experiences we’d have never had.”
