Applications are invited for Australia’s Macquarie University Vice-Chancellor’s International Scholarship.

The Postgraduate Indian Women’s Scholarship provides a partial tuition fee scholarship for outstanding postgraduate female students to study at Macquarie University. It has been designed to recognise academic excellence and provide financial assistance for female Indian students. The scholarship will be awarded progressively through the year to future applicants to the university based on academic merit.

It is a partial scholarship for postgraduate studies. The amount is up to AUD$11,000 and it will be applied towards the applicant tuition fee.

Scholarships will be awarded in the fields of engineering, environment, human science, media, linguistics, and education. Applicants must have achieved a minimum GPA of 5.0 out of 7.0 or 60% in their undergraduate degree.

The scholarship does not provide financial support in the form of a living allowance, nor does it provide for the cost of visa application, overseas student health cover, airfares, accommodation, conferences or other costs associated with study. The scholarship cannot be extended.

Scholarship holders will be responsible for any costs associated with obtaining a student visa to study in Australia.

Recipients of the scholarship will not have further claim to financial support from the university. Scholarship holders can undertake part-time work subject to conditions of their student visa.

The deadline for submitting applications is June 30, 2017. For more information on the application process and eligibility, click here
