Academic Merit Scholarship
The Master's Academic Merit Scholarship at UOWD covers 15% - 25% of tuition fees each semester. The scholarship does not include textbooks, excursions, accommodation, living expenses or any other study-related expenses.
Two categories of scholarships are available to continuing postgraduate students.
- 25% scholarship
- 15% scholarship
Within each category, the number of scholarships awarded is limited and you must meet the minimum selection criteria for the relevant category in order for your application to be considered.
Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Once all scholarships have been awarded for a semester, no further scholarship applications will be accepted.
- Applications are open to current/continuing students of any citizenship
- Applicants must have achieved a minimum cumulative Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 75 in their studies to date and have completed a minimum of 24 credit points (postgraduate students) to apply
- Academic Merit Scholarships - Continuing Students are awarded at the beginning of Autumn trimester each year. The scholarships are valid for 1 year and are worth 15% or 25% of the scholarship holder’s tuition fees at UOWD for the ensuing academic year.
- The number of scholarships available is limited, and scholarships will be awarded to the most deserving students as decided by the UOWD Scholarship Committee.
- Scholarships awarded will cover part of the tuition fees only for the subsequent academic year after which the scholarship has been awarded.
- Scholarships will be forfeited if the student does not enrol in the semester immediately following the session in which the scholarship was granted. Summer session is optional.
This is an unlimited scholarship worth up to 25% of tuition fees for the academic year after it is awarded. The scholarship is awarded prior to the commencement of Autumn trimester each year. The scholarships do not include textbooks, excursions, accommodation, living expenses or any other costs involved in undertaking study.

Requirements to Retain the Sports Scholarship
Scholarships awarded to students are reviewed at the beginning of every Autumn trimester (unless otherwise stated). In order to retain this Scholarship, students must meet the following criteria:
- Enrol in a minimum of 2 subjects (for PG) in Autumn and Spring
- Maintain a WAM of ≥65 at the end of each semester
- Receive no “Fail” (F or TF) grades
* In addition to the academic achievements required, Sports Scholarship recipients must have actively participated in all practice sessions and competitions for the UOWD sports team of which they are a member. Sports participation will be assessed by the Manager, Student Services.
Scholarship holders failing to meet the above requirements will no longer be entitled to retain their scholarship and will therefore have to pay the relevant tuition fees in order to continue their studies.
