Many high-achieving VCE students will start their journey at the University of Melbourne next year with fully paid scholarships under the National Scholarship Program.

As part of the prestigious Chancellor’s Scholars Program, the University of Melbourne National Scholarship recognises academic excellence among school leavers. Students receive a tuition-fee exempt Commonwealth Supported Place in the undergraduate degree of their choice.

Victorian secondary school leavers are also given a $5,000 annual allowance for the duration of their degree, and inter-state scholars receive $10,000 allowance annually.

Students who achieve an ATAR or equivalent of 99.9 or above are eligible, as are Bachelor of Music applicants who receive an ATAR or equivalent of 99.85 or above, and Indigenous students who achieve an ATAR of 90.00 or above.

University of Melbourne Provost Margaret Sheil said the scholarship recipients will be inspired and engaged by the possibilities at Melbourne when they begin their studies next year.

“We are excited to announce this year’s cohort of National Scholarship recipients, and welcome them to the University community. Their time at the University will prepare them well for whichever future pathway they choose to take.”
