Scholarships for Indian students to study in Australia
New Delhi: Sydney-based University of New South Wales (UNSW) has invited application for 61. As per the official statement, these scholarships have been introduced to attract "bright" Indian minds and provide them financial assistance for studying in the Australian varsity.
The scholarships for the forthcoming July 2018 admissions exclusively for Indians are open to under graduate and post graduate students wishing to study at UNSW.
These include one full tuition fee scholarship and 10 scholarships each worth (Australian) $10,000 per annum for tuition fees. Also up for the grabs are 50 awards each worth $5,000 to cover tuition fee for one year that is open to post graduate students only.
Australia is fast emerging as the preferred higher education destination with the job market in the country set to grow at 7.8 per cent for the next five years.
"We need to anticipate the future, especially when it is evolving at such a rapid pace. What you need is
not an evolution of thinking but the revolution of thought, if we are to stay relevant. That is the biggest
challenge that higher education needs to accommodate and adjust to," said Amit Dasgupta, the India country director of UNSW.
To win awards, candidates need to secure admission to the Semester-2 2018 and submit a two-minute digital video testimonial of how a scholarship at UNSW will help them achieve their aspirations.
The last date for applications is May 30, 2018.
