Live and Study in Australia on Scholarship

Scholarship

Australia scholarship support is the most tangible expression of the UI’s commitment to increasing or help the number of students to live, study or further their educational career in Australia. The mission is to assist talented and determined, low-income students who are good candidates for financial assistance.

There are a varieties of scholarship and need-based grants available for students studying in Australia for a semester/academic year and for students studying in Australia during the summer/winter sessions (or other short periods of time). You are required to make your choice when filling the Scholarship online form.

There is a lot of competition for a limited number of awards but it is worthwhile applying for the ones relevant to you. You should begin your research early on as some scholarships require you to apply even a year before your course starts. Many students think they don’t have a chance but the scholarship recipients are usually students who were willing to put the time and effort in the application.

A number of governmental and non-governmental bodies, including educational charities, provide financial assistance to a range of students seeking education in Australia. If you really want to live, work and study in Australia through Scholarship, then these particular page is for you.

There are many scholarships, grants, and bursaries which can help support you financially with your studies in Australia. They are offered by the Australian Government, education institutions, and a number of other public and private organisations.

All applications and enquiries for scholarships are made through the scholarship provider.
