Scholarships and financial support

Completing your degree is a life-changing experience so we’re here to help you make the most of it.

With over $2.5 million in scholarships awarded every year, students from all walks of life are enjoying the benefits a scholarship can bring. Unlike loans, scholarships do not need to be repaid so you can spend more time focussing on your studies.

Whether you’re a domestic or international student, new or continuing, we encourage you to explore the opportunities available.

Postgraduate research can be challenging so a scholarship can help you make the most of the opportunity. Scholarships can help to cover fees and living costs and are available to both domestic and international students.

External opportunities

In addition to Murdoch scholarships, you can also apply for external scholarships. These are offered and managed by a range of organisations outside of Murdoch. In many cases, you can receive both a Murdoch and an external scholarship, so we encourage you to explore the opportunities.
