The Hope Scholarship has been established at the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Monash University, Parkville to help support a new student commencing in 2018. The scholarship will provide $10,000 annually over four years to the recipient, supporting their study during their undergraduate degree at the faculty.
Commencing students can choose from the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) / Master of Pharmacy degree, of which they will receive scholarship support during their undergraduate studies; or alternatively the Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences or Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences (Advanced with Honours) programs, to which the scholarship will cover the duration of the degree.
This scholarship will also preference a student who is of Maltese descent, which is defined as either the applicant was born in Malta or has a parent or grandparent born in Malta. Please note that Maltese heritage is a preference only and not a requirement for scholarship eligibility.
Applications are available for an Australian or New Zealand citizen, or a holder of an Australian permanent resident visa or holder of a permanent humanitarian visa, who is under the age of 30 at the time of application. Additional criteria request that the applicant has lived in Victoria for at least two years prior to application, and will be required to submit evidence of their genealogy (if applicable) and a statement on how the scholarship would benefit their education and their vision for the future.
