With over $2.5 million in scholarships awarded every year, Murdoch University is here to help you on your academic journey.
Scholarships are designed to help cover costs
If you're eligible for a scholarship, you will receive a payment to help support your study. It's not a loan so it doesn't need 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.
Whether you're a school leaver or a mature aged student, there are academic scholarships available for all kinds of students at Murdoch University.
