Mercy Scholarship

The  highly anticipated Mercy Scholarship has now been published on the Scholarships  and Bursaries browser.  The  scholarship opened on Thursday, 1 October 2015 and closes on Monday, 30 November 2015.

The  overarching message or rationale behind the scholarship is as follows –

Australian Catholic University (ACU) is committed  to the dignity of the human person, and that applies equally to all human  beings: victims as well as to those who have been convicted of crimes.

As part of this commitment the University has  introduce two scholarships open to international students to study undergraduate  degrees at any one of ACU’s campuses[1]. The  scholarship will be equivalent to the full tuition of the recipient’s course  duration up to four years, and will be awarded to academically qualified  applicants upon submission of an essay on the theme of ‘the sanctity of human  life’.

[1] Excluding  Adelaide Campus which is not CRICOS registered.

External Scholarships and Bursaries Browser

Please remember that a number of external organisations also offer scholarship and bursary opportunities to tertiary students. These awards are promoted to students via the External Scholarships and Bursaries page; the Scholarships Office encourages all students to view the browser, especially those who may not be eligible for an internal scholarship or bursary.

If  you receive an enquiry from an external provider, requesting that we advertise  their scholarship on our browser, please ask them to email all details to scholarships@acu.edu.au,  so that we may confirm the scholarship is suitable for listing.
