About the program

Monash Scholars is a prestigious program for high achieving secondary school students. The program is offered by Monash University to give high potential students a unique head start into university life. It provides opportunities for personal and academic development, as well as, giving students the knowledge, skills and confidence to make the right study choices. It also enables them to expand their network of like-minded peers.

Participating schools

There are currently 134 participating schools in the program. Most participating schools are offered up to three students per year to participate in the program. See list of the participating schools.

If you attend a school that is not a participating school, you can still apply for one of our 30 open places.

How to apply

The application process information is shared directly with schools.

Applications for students from Monash Scholar Partner Schools

The school will receive information about the application process. It will be the school's responsibility to collect expressions of interest (EOI) from students wishing to apply for the program. From these EOIs, schools will endorse a select number of students to apply and will provide those students with a unique application link. Monash will then assess all applications and advise students of the outcome of their application.

Applications for students who do not attend a Monash Scholar Partner Schools

Students that do not attend a Monash Scholar Partner School can still apply to participate in the program through one of the open places. Students will need to ask their career's teacher to contact the Monash Scholar's team to request application information. Information will be shared with the teacher, who will then provide an application link if the application is endorsed. Monash will then assess all applications and advise students of the outcome of their application.
