Top VCE students offered Melbourne Chancellor’s Scholarship
Many of Victoria’s highest-achieving VCE students were today offered a Melbourne Chancellor’s Scholarship to study at the University of Melbourne next year.
The Melbourne Chancellor’s Scholarship offers students a generous, HECS-exempt Commonwealth Supported Place in one of the University of Melbourne’s undergraduate degrees and for Victorian secondary school leavers a $5000 annual allowance for the duration of their undergraduate degree.
Scholars from interstate will receive a HECS-exempt place as well as an annual allowance of $10 000 over the duration of their undergraduate degree.
Students will also receive a Melbourne Global Scholar’s Award of up to $2500 for an approved period of overseas study as an Exchange or Study Abroad student.
Students who achieved an ATAR or equivalent of 99.90 or above are eligible, as are Bachelor of Music applicants who achieved an ATAR or equivalent of 99.85 or above and Indigenous students who gained an ATAR of 90.00 or above.
This year’s recipients will benefit from new student experience initiatives that include a Commencement Ceremony to welcome all undergraduates, a Melbourne Orientation to maximise their start of university experience, and peer mentoring.
Congratulating the new scholars, University of Melbourne Provost Mark Considine said that the high achievers would be joining a world-class institution that celebrates academic achievement and the diversity and richness of a truly international community.
“The University of Melbourne prepares students for any future, with an academic program that provides breadth and depth, as well as overseas study. I am delighted to welcome another outstanding group of students to study with us in 2020,” Professor Considine said.
The scholarship is one of the most generous in Australia and offers guaranteed pathways into graduate study including the Juris Doctor and Doctor of Medicines courses.
