Maisie Fawcett Scholarship

Established by a collaborative agreement between the University of Melbourne and Victoria University, the Maisie Fawcett Scholarships is available to Victoria University graduates to undertake a graduate coursework degree at the University of Melbourne. 

The University usually offers up to 5 scholarships per year.


The Maisie Fawcett Scholarship provides a one-off payment of $5,000 in the first year of enrolment.


To be considered for the Maisie Fawcett scholarship, you must:

  • be an Australian citizen or permanent resident,
  • have applied for and received an offer of place under Graduate Access Melbourne, the University’s special entry scheme for graduate courses,
  • have completed an undergraduate degree at Victoria University, and
  • not have received a Graduate Access Melbourne Bursary.



You do not need to submit an application for this scholarship. Eligible students who have applied for admission to the University under the Graduate Access Melbourne program will be automatically considered for this scholarship.


Eligible students are selected on the basis of academic merit and the information about their personal circumstances in their Graduate Access Melbourne application. Priority will be given to students who have completed their undergraduate degree at Victoria University in the year preceding their enrolment at the University of Melbourne.


Successful candidates will be advised of the outcome before the start of each semester.
