Australia Awards Scholarships
Australia Awards Scholarships are long term development awards administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. They aim to contribute to the long term development needs of Australia's partner countries in line with bilateral and regional agreements. They provide opportunities for people from developing countries, particularly those countries located in the Indo-Pacific region, to undertake full time undergraduate or postgraduate study at participating Australian universities and Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institutions.
BUPA provide Overseas Health Cover (OHC) to UOW College and University of Wollongong international students. In conjunction with OSH, BUPA awards $2500 annually to UOW College for student scholarships. From this, the College awards six BUPA scholarships annually to our best performing students during the year. Scholarships are subject to change.
