Scholarships

The Alumni scholarships scheme honours the critical role alumni play in nurturing our best scholars and future leaders. Since 2006, the University has awarded several postgraduate alumni scholarships per year in perpetuity, each worth $5000, to highly ranked applicants who have been awarded an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) or a University of Sydney Postgraduate Award (UPA). Applications for these open in late August and close at the end of October each year.

The alumni scholarships are awarded each year by Tracey Beck, Director of Alumni Relations and Events, on the recommendation of the Post Graduate Awards Sub-Committee, to highly ranked applicants who have been awarded an APA or a UPA in the University’s annual APA/UPA application round.

The APA/UPA applications open in late August and close at the end of October each year.
