If you’re studying at Sydney next year there are numerous scholarships still open for new and current students across many study areas including engineering, the sciences, education, pharmacy, dentistry, nursing, medicine, social work, engineering, and business.
Applications are also still open for equity scholarships for new and continuing students, exchange scholarships, honours scholarships, travel and exchange scholarships and even for a student intent on making Australia a better place.
Every year, we provide more than 700 scholarships worth more than $65 million, and that doesn’t include prizes or college and sporting scholarships. They’re funded through philanthropy, by individual faculties, the federal government or the University itself.
Many faculties also provide scholarships, awards and prizes to their most talented and hardest-working students.
Undergraduate scholarships generally range from $2000 for a single year to $60,000 for the duration of a degree. There are also cash prizes and awards including certificates, internship opportunities, travel funding, books, and vouchers.
Just a few of the scholarships still available include:
Madeline Greer (Bachelor of Commerce/Arts) said the Outstanding Achievement Scholarship she received had enabled her to move from her home in Dubbo to study in Sydney.
“My faculty scholarships also allowed me to study abroad in London and Shanghai, which added depth and real-world international experience to my degree,” she said.
For postgraduate research students, we offer a number of research awards and top-up schemes in addition to the Australian Postgraduate Award (for domestic students) and International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (for international research students).
There are also scholarships specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, such as the Breadwinners' Programme, mature-age students, elite athletes and performers, and undergraduate international students.
University of Sydney alumnus Dr Martin Seneviratne has been named the 2017 Roden Cutler NSW John Monash Scholar. The award will see Dr Seneviratne head to Stanford University to continue his ground-breaking work into clinical informatics.
The University of Sydney has four finalists in the annual Australian Financial Review higher education awards, which celebrate excellence in the sector.
The Nobel organisations have been steadily working to modernise the prizes’ image.
