Our 21 scholarships for domestic and international students recognise potential, assist those in need and reward high achievement across Sydney Law School’s Undergraduate, Juris Doctor, Postgraduate, Postgraduate Research and Oxford partnership programs.

Commenting on the value of a postgraduate scholarship, Ross Waite Parsons Scholarship awardee Jaison K John said: “As an international student from India, the scholarship has provided me with the financial support to pursue the Master of Laws program at the University of Sydney.

“The scholarship will allow me the chance to publish articles and conduct research work highlighting the grey areas in labor laws, in order to contribute to the stream of labor relations and management. I intend to establish a think tank globally with a vision to identify the current trends, grey areas, future possibilities and concerns that could arise in the area of labor laws and this opportunity to study will pave the way for my goal.”

Sydney Law School’s scholarships offer you the financial freedom to focus on your study and other commitments. Scholarships range in value from $1,000 to support internships to up to $87,500 to support PhD study.

In addition to the financial benefit, our scholarship programs also offer opportunities to connect with our academic staff and other scholars, allow you to undertake internship and research opportunities while you study, and help you to graduate with a highly regarded degree and strong employment opportunities*.
