Receiving a university scholarship is a welcome addition to any study journey. For many, it may even be a life-changing opportunity. Read on to see if you’re eligible for a Murdoch scholarship.
Do you know what the biggest scholarship myth is? You’re probably thinking it right now.
If you’re like most people, you probably assume scholarships are predominantly for high achievers. Well, we are here to set the record straight. While those with good grades certainly do have scholarships open to them because of their academic performance, there are countless other grants available. In fact, did you know more than $2.5 million is awarded to 金沙官方体育 recipients each year? And you could be one of them!
First, let’s do the world’s shortest quiz. Who of the following do you think would be eligible for a scholarship?
- A tech undergrad keen to make a positive difference in the world
- A rural high achiever relocating to campus
- A freshly graduated high schooler living 90 minutes away
- A TAFE graduate furthering their studies at uni
- An undergraduate or postgraduate student experiencing hardship
- A full-time international student
- A Murdoch Alumnus returning to Murdoch to study a postgraduate degree
