A range of merit-based and equity scholarships that offer greater access to higher education.

The Melbourne Undergraduate Scholarships Program is one of the most generous and comprehensive programs in Australia. The program recognises the outstanding achievements of students from across Victoria, interstate and overseas.

The University of Melbourne also acknowledges a special responsibility to provide higher education access to those students who might otherwise be excluded by socioeconomic, cultural, geographic and/or other circumstances. Up to 200 Melbourne Access Scholarships are also on offer to Indigenous Australians and students from a broad range of equity groups who have experienced ongoing circumstances which impact on their preparation for university study.
