Disability Scholarship Program - Victoria

The Disability Scholarship Program aims to achieve a long-term increase in the number of qualified people with a disability employed across all areas and all levels of the public service.

The 2017 program will be offering a limited number of scholarships for people with a disability in Victoria in the following areas of study:

  • law
  • criminology
  • para-legal
  • psychology
  • social work
  • other justice-related fields.

A scholarship for study at diploma, advanced diploma, bachelor, and postgraduate level will be offered at a tertiary institution within Victoria.

Prospective students interested in undertaking justice-related courses will need to check with the respective institutions to ascertain the requirements of lodging an application and the closing date for courses. A point of reference for all courses is the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre Guide (VTAC Guide 2017) (External link)

The scholarship will be awarded on a merit principle, taking into account an applicant’s eligibility, past academic results, ability to complete a course of study, and competitiveness against other scholarship applicants.

The scholarship program will provide eligible students with a fortnightly study allowance to study full-time or part-time to complete up to a maximum of 2 years of an undergraduate or postgraduate course.

Applications close: 31 March 2017.
