The Faculty of Arts 110 Scholarship
The Faculty of Arts 110 Scholarship, commemorating 110 years of the Faculty, aims to ensure that an Arts degree continues to be accessible to all students, no matter their background.
We want to ensure that as many students as possible are able to access a high quality Arts education at the University. We want to nurture a new generation of thinkers and leaders through The Faculty of Arts and we are committed to increasing access and equity and assisting students who may struggle to find the means to come to the University.
It is for this very reason that we have established The Faculty of Arts 110 Scholarship Fund to increase support for those students who have demonstrated the skill and creative acumen to excel, but who struggle to afford a university education or are hampered by circumstances beyond their control. The Faculty of Arts 110 Scholarship Fund provides support for undergraduates and graduates who struggle financially, have relocated from rural areas and/or are Indigenous Australians.
Several awards will be offered from this amount.
Open to students who are enrolling or enrolled in an Honours, Graduate coursework or Graduate research program in the Faculty of Arts.
Preference may be given to students who are graduates of the University of Melbourne. However, the most important considerations for the scholarship are to promote access and equity by awarding the scholarship to students who are in financial need, have relocated from rural areas or are indigenous Australians.
From amongst eligible applicants, the scholarship/s will be determined by a selection committee and awarded to the student most disadvantaged in their academic work by financial need.
Recipients are required to:
- Accept award online within 21 days
- Write two letters of appreciation to their donor/committee (upon acceptance and after completion)
- Submit a final report
Applicants will be advised of the outcome via email within 6-8 weeks after the closing date.
Eligible applicants must complete:
