Pathway to Victoria Scholarship

Pathway to Victoria Scholarship Program has been made possible by funding from the Victorian Government through Study Melbourne to support international students undertaking a pathway program that will enable them to study a higher qualification in Victoria, Australia.

The Pathway to Victoria Scholarship is valued at up to AUD$2,500 and is applied as a tuition fee reduction on the cost of a pathway course that leads to higher study at Sunraysia Institute of TAFE in Mildura, Victoria. Scholarship recipients will be awarded a scholarship valued at AUD$2,500 except where their pathway course tuition fees are less than this, in which case the total tuition course fee amount will be provided as a scholarship.
