There are a variety of specific scholarships on offer for students who choose to study at the Discipline of Earth Sciences (Geology Geochemistry and Geophysics) or CODES ARC Centre of Excellence in Ore Deposits. The scholarships cover things such as living allowances, research project costs and international tuition fees. These change occasionally, so it is a good idea to keep an eye on this section of our website.
The University, Discipline and Centre offer various scholarships and prizes for undergraduate students. The Scholarship values range from $3,000 to $10,000 pa for a duration of 1-4 years. Many are funded by the minerals industry.
