Scholarships to study in Australia

Australian universities and colleges provide a wide range of scholarships to meritorious international students to help them fund their studies. Apart from this, many scholarships, grants and bursaries are also offered by the Australian government, public and private establishments. Before you apply to any of these scholarships, do check the eligibility and criteria, along with the closing date.

The primary criterion for most scholarships is a good academic score, however, it also depends on factors such as your chosen destination, subject and level.

Some common scholarships programs available to international students in Australia include:

  • Australia Awards: This includes scholarships coming from the Department of Education and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) and the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT).
  • Australia APEC Women in Research Fellowship: These fellowships were started with the aim to empower women and are open to high-achieving female researchers from Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) to pursue their research in Australian education and research institutions.
  • Australian Government Research and Training Program (RTP): This pool of funding is dedicated to supporting a student’s (local and international) Research Doctorate and Research Master’s degree.

 

Most scholarships to study in Australia cover tuition fees although some may also cover living or travelling expenses. Research programmes at times offer up to 100% scholarship to students including tuition fee and living expenses.

Since a lot of students apply for these scholarships, we recommend you to apply in advance. This will help receive a timely response with which you can take your decision accordingly. Every university and college has its own list of scholarships for international students. Do check if there are scholarships specifically available for Malaysian natives.

Here is a list of some of the scholarships available for Malaysian students applying to institutions in Australia.
