In an exciting development for Indian students aspiring for higher education abroad, Deakin University has launched the Vice-Chancellor’s Meritorious Scholarship Program (VSMSP) 2024. This initiative aims to recognize and support exceptional academic talent from India, offering ten full-fee scholarships valued at over Rs 6 million each. The scholarships are available for both undergraduate and postgraduate studies across all fields of study at Deakin’s campuses in Victoria, Australia.

As part of its ‘Changing Lives’ initiative, Deakin University seeks to reward Indian students demonstrating outstanding academic performance and the potential to make a global impact. The scholarships underscore Deakin’s commitment to fostering academic excellence and cultural diversity.

Candidates eligible for the scholarships must meet stringent criteria, including:

  • Postgraduate Courses: Eligible candidates must have attained 85% or above in Year 12 scores and 80% or above in their undergraduate degree, in addition to meeting English language proficiency standards and demonstrating notable achievements in co-curricular activities.

The selection process will include an application review, referee recommendations, online interviews, and in-person panel interviews with representatives from academia and industry. This comprehensive selection ensures that the chosen scholars not only excel academically but also display a commitment to societal contributions and possess strong English language skills essential for success at Deakin University.

Deakin University’s commitment to educational excellence extends beyond these scholarships, with additional bursaries and scholarships available, covering up to 25% of tuition fees for other deserving students seeking a world-class education at Deakin campuses.

Indian students interested in applying for the VSMSP 2024 are encouraged to review the eligibility criteria and submit their applications promptly, ensuring all required documents are included as specified by Deakin University.
