Grants and bursaries

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

Student Grants and the Housing Bursary can be found on the Melbourne Scholarships website. 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. There is one application form for these grants.
