Support a scholarship or bursary

An International House scholarship can open doors for students of talent and promise, helping them to achieve their potential regardless of financial hardship.

Without support, many young students go without essentials or work long hours to fund their living costs. Others simply are unable to pursue a university education. The cost of education and accommodation in Melbourne has made the decision to move here a financially difficult one for many students and their families.

A scholarship to support a student from a rural, indigenous, international or disadvantaged background will ease the financial burden of moving away from home, and help talented young minds to pursue a Melbourne education. Students who live at International House have found the transition from school to university, from rural to urban living and from their country to Australia much easier, primarily due to the supportive atmosphere that exists at International House.
