Grants and bursaries

There are many grants and bursaries provided by the University that are assessed on the basis of financial need.

Please note that terms such as 'grants', 'bursaries' and 'scholarships' are often used interchangeably. Don't let this confuse you.

Student Grants and the Housing Bursary are located on the Melbourne Scholarships website. There is one application form for these grants. These grants and bursaries are primarily given on the basis of financial need, and are open to both local and international students to apply for.
