General Scholarships and Fellowships
It is a major priority of the University to support both students and faculty. This is accomplished through contributions in the form of undergraduate and post graduate scholarships and through Faculty Fellowships. Scholarships enable students who might not be able to attend University, because costs are prohibitive, to obtain a degree. Fellowships enable Faculty to travel to another university to pursue their research.

Study Abroad Scholarship Fund
This scholarship fund allows US students to spend a semester or more at UNSW as part of their education. Students will typically be undertaking studies at a US University and will receive course credit for their studies at UNSW.

The US/Aust Scholarship and Fellowship 
Exchange Programs are a valuable initiative to help both American students and scholars travel to The University of New South Wales to study or teach, and UNSW students and scholars to undertake their studies or research at an American university.

Robyn Denholm MCom '99 UNSW

The Denholm Scholarship in Business at the Australian School of Business.

"The main reason for the scholarship is really just giving back to someone who is coming through the university and needs a bit of help to take advantage of university life. I'm grateful for my education because it was a great foundation for moving forward."
