Murdoch scholarships

A scholarship is a payment made to an eligible student to support their study. It is not a loan and does not have to be repaid. Most scholarships are not intended to be used to pay tuition fees, but can help to cover university costs such as books, living expenses and transport.

At Murdoch we offer scholarships for a range of students including:

  • international students
  • students facing financial hardship
  • students with records of high achievement
  • students studying specific courses

There are also a number of scholarships offered by external providers, including government and private organisations. Find out if you're eligible.
