Scholarship & funding

One of the most common misconceptions about scholarships is that you have to be ‘top in your class’ to apply. Melbourne Polytechnic scholarships are awarded on a range of criteria, such as merit, your area of study or personal circumstances. A scholarship will give you opportunities for personal development and recognition. They look great on your CV and best of all, you won’t have to pay them back.

Melbourne Polytechnic scholarships are available to a range of students, so take a look at what scholarships we offer currently. Available scholarships differ from semester to semester and year to year so keep an eye on what may be available to you.
