As former international students, Beth and I know that every little bit of funding helps
when you are studying. We each paid our own way to study overseas, and
had to access loans and work part time during our studies to make it happen.
Because we've been there, done that, we created the OzTREKK Scholarships Fund. We hope that OzTREKK Scholarships help you in a small way, to further enjoy the experience of a lifetime that comes as an international student in Australia.
Each OzTREKK student who qualifies for an OzTREKK Scholarship will receive one $500 scholarship during the first year of study. The OzTREKK Scholarship will be paid directly toward your Australian university tuition.
To obtain an OzTREKK Scholarship, you must
1. submit your Australian university application directly to the OzTREKK office; and
2. accept your Australian university program offer through OzTREKK; and
3. commence your Australian university program during the 2014 or 2015 academic year.
Yes! No essays, no reference letters, no additional applications to complete and no fine print. It's that easy.
