Master of Applied Economics Scholarships
The School of Economics makes a limited number of scholarships available to international and domestic students who are seeking entry into the Master of Applied Economics. Applications for the Scholarships are now open for 2017.
Each Scholarship provides a partial tuition-fee scholarship of AUD 10,000 under the conditions described below, to be awarded in two equal parts: AUD 5,000 in a student's first year of study and AUD 5,000 in a student's second year of study.
- Eligibility Requirements
In order to be eligible for consideration a student must:
- Have applied to study the Master of Applied Economics full time and be offered admission into the program in 2017 at the University of Adelaide; AND
- Not be the recipient of any other scholarship or sponsorship funding for the Master of Applied Economics studies.
No previous studies in economics are required to be eligible for a Scholarship.
- Selection Criteria
The Scholarships will be awarded on merit to students from anywhere in the world. Applications will be assessed on the basis of the applicant's university results and accompanying motivational letter.
In order to be selected as a Scholarship recipient, an applicant must:
- Achieve a minimum GPA of 5.0 (on a scale of 7.0) in their previous studies; AND
- Furnish a completed online application form by Friday 6 January 2017 for the Semester 1 of 2017 intake or by Friday 2 June 2017 for the Semester 2 of 2017 intake.
While Scholarships will be available for entry in both Semester 1 and Semester 2, preference may be given to applicants able to enter in Semester 1.
The Faculty will grant up to ten Scholarships of AUD 10,000 each to applicants commencing in the Master of Applied Economics in 2017. These are partial tuition fee Scholarships only. The first award of the Scholarship will be made upon commencement of the first semester of studies in Adelaide. The second award will be made upon the recipient's commencement of the third semester of studies.
- VISA Entitlement and Requirements
Scholarship recipients are required to meet the cost of compulsory Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC), living costs, cost of return airfares and the remaining tuition fees. These costs are not covered by the Scholarship.
The Scholarship must be taken up in the semester and year for which it is offered. The University may withdraw the Scholarship if a candidate fails to provide any required documentation or provides false or misleading documentation.
- Deferment and Withdrawal
It is not possible to defer the award and the Scholarship cannot be transferred to any other degree or institution.
Students who subsequently withdraw from the Master of Applied Economics program of study at the University before the census date for their first semester of study must repay the Scholarship in its entirety to the University. Any outstanding repayments will be deducted from the tuition fee refund.
- Application Process
An application for admission to the University in 2017 will constitute an application for a Scholarship provided that a completed Scholarship application form is also forwarded electronically to the Faculty.
Successful recipients will receive the Scholarship offer from the Faculty of the Professions. All applications will be assessed on a merit-based selection process. To accept the Scholarship, the recipient MUST accept the University offer of admissions by the deadline stipulated in the Scholarship offer letter. If no response is received by the specified deadline, the offer of the Scholarship will lapse and will be offered to the next eligible candidate.
The University reserves the right not to award the Scholarships if there are no candidates of sufficient merit as determined in each case, or to amend the availability of Scholarships and/or the information provided in the Scholarships details at anytime.
