Scholarships & Prizes


Macquarie University offers a range of scholarships. Most have a strong emphasis on social inclusion and equity and are awarded on the basis of financial need and/or other hardship. Others recognise factors such as academic excellence or sporting achievement etc.

Deidre Anderson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor"University study is an opportunity to change your life and the world around you.  Our scholarship program helps students who otherwise may not have had this opportunity - from low socio-economic backgrounds, regional and remote Australia, and Indigenous Australians - to participate fully as members of the Macquarie community.  We also offer scholarships that enhance the university experience of high-achieving students, foster personal and professional development, and provide access to leading academics and business partners through placements, mentoring and research projects.  I encourage you to explore the options available and discuss the opportunities they can open up with your friends, family and our helpful team."  Deidre Anderson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Students and Registrar)
