VU Achievement scholarships are achievement-based scholarships for students from Melbourne's west. Achievement is determined by a combination of commitment and motivation towards studies, community involvement and extra curricular activities as determined by their school.
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)
