The postgraduate Academic Scholarship at UOWD covers 15% to 25% of tuition fees each semester. The scholarship does not include textbooks, excursions, accommodation, living expenses or any other costs involved in undertaking study.
Two categories of scholarship are available to postgraduate students.
- 25% 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.
Eligibility and Selection Criteria

Scholarships awarded to students are reviewed at the end of each semester (unless otherwise stated). In order to retain this Scholarship, students must meet the following criteria:
- Minimum grade Distinction "D" in all subjects attempted
