Medicine and health scholarships

We invest in potential, reward talent and help those in need
We're proud to offer a comprehensive program of scholarships and prizes for both academic excellence and equity. Our goal is to relieve some of the financial pressures of studying so you can focus on what matters most - your education.

Scholarships provide the financial security to pursue education with more freedom so you can immerse yourself fully in the opportunities provided in your course, get involved in university life and excel academically.  

The University of Sydney awards scholarships based on two criteria – excellence and achievement, and equity and merit. We offer these scholarships to the most able and deserving students, both domestic and international.

With more than 700 scholarship programs on offer across the university, there are a range of options for bachelors and honours students, postgraduate courework students and postgraduate research students.

We invite you to take your time to look at the faculty-based scholarship opportunities open to Faculty of Medicine and Health students as well as the wider university scholarship schemes on offer by exploring the Scholarships Office website.
