VU Achievement scholarships are merit-based (academic achievement) scholarships for students from Melbourne's west.
Secondary schools in the western region council areas of Brimbank, Hobson's Bay, Hume, Maribyrnong, Melton, Moonee Valley and Wyndham will be offered two scholarships:
one for the highest achieving year 12 student who enrols in a VU bachelor degree (undergraduate course)
one for the highest achieving year 12 student who enrols in a Victoria University Polytechnic (TAFE) course.
Please note: if there is not an eligible TAFE recipient, the equivalent scholarship value will be offered to the second highest achieving student enrolled in an undergraduate course from the participating school.
