To make sure our students can spend more time studying than working, we offer one of the most comprehensive scholarship programs in Victoria.
Every year, we offer more than 500 scholarships. These include:
- VU Achievement scholarships for secondary schools in the western region of Melbourne
- Chancellor's scholarships for high-achieving commencing students in a range of courses
- sport scholarships for elite level sporting student athletes
- externally funded scholarships offered by other organisations
- TAFE (Victoria Polytechnic) scholarships (hardship and achievement-based scholarships)
- bachelor degree & honours scholarships
- graduate research scholarships
- international scholarships for students from Asia, the Middle East and Pacific regions.
"With a Western Chances Scholarship and Achievement Scholarship I’ve been able to buy a new computer, equipment and text books which can be very expensive. I have cerebral palsy and through VU's disability support I’ve also been able to make alternative arrangements like extra time to do exams."
