Scholarship description

The School of Economics offers a full-fee waiver scholarship to a student who can demonstrate a keen interest in economics but who has been disadvantaged during their high schooling and may not be achieving the top OP band. Students from low socio-economic backgrounds, of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background or who have suffered educational setbacks are encouraged to apply.

The scholarship is available to Australian students who are completing year 12 studies and looking to apply for the Bachelor of Economics (BEcon).
