The School of Economics supports and manages a number of highly sought-after scholarships and bursaries for domestic and international students. Below is a brief description of the scholarships and who should apply.

One month prior to accepting applications, a link will be available to explore the scholarship in detail on our UQ Scholarships website

There are many more scholarships available to UQ students that do not focus on a single area of study. We recommend you browse our range of scholarships to see what else you may be eligible for.

Please note that the value, duration and number of scholarships are only indicative and based on the disbursement from the previous year. These will be updated when the scholarship opens and will be outlined in the rules document at the bottom of each scholarship page. 

Summer and Winter Research scholarships

The Summer and Winter Research Programs offer scholarships to students wishing to undertake a research internship over the summer and winter vacation periods.

Research internships provide students with the opportunity to work with a researcher in a formal research environment so that they may experience the research process and discover what research is being undertaken in their field of interest at UQ.
