About Australia Government Scholarship

The award is a renewable, merit-based award that is also fully funded (covering full tuition, room, meal plan includes up to 19 meals per week, general fee, and the cost of textbooks for eight consecutive semesters). It also supports recipients who can demonstrate how they would use the scholarship to further these objectives.
