Description

The University of Newcastle, in partnership with The Malaysian Australian Alumni Council (MAAC), has established the University of Newcastle - Malaysian Australia Columbo Plan Commemoration (MACC) Scholarship to attract high-performing Malaysian students to study at the University of Newcastle.

This is a merit-based scholarship that recognises applicants with a strong academic background and incentivises them to continue striving to be the best that they can be.

Scholarships will be automatically awarded to Malaysian students who have received an offer to study in an eligible, non-quota program and who will commence studying with the University of Newcastle.

Benefits

The scholarship is valued at AU$10,000 for each year of study under full-time study load, apportioned over each course taken (pro-rata with an approved load reduction on program plan, credits exemptions, progression or wellbeing grounds).

The advertised number of scholarships and value is indicative and will vary depending on credits issued with offer letter and the number of eligible students receiving the scholarship.
