General Scholarships and Fellowships
It is a major priority of the University to support both students and faculty. This is accomplished through contributions in the form of undergraduate and post graduate scholarships and through Faculty Fellowships. Scholarships enable students who might not be able to attend University, because costs are prohibitive, to obtain a degree. Fellowships enable Faculty to travel to another university to pursue their research.

Study Abroad Scholarship Fund
This scholarship fund allows US students to spend a semester or more at UNSW as part of their education. Students will typically be undertaking studies at a US University and will receive course credit for their studies at UNSW.

The US/Aust Scholarship and Fellowship
Exchange Programs are a valuable initiative to help both American students and scholars travel to The University of New South Wales to study or teach, and UNSW students and scholars to undertake their studies or research at an American university.

UNSW & Study Abroad - Friends and US Alumni Inc is a charitable entity under US law and all donations are fully tax deductible in the US. 100% of your donation goes to the fund of your choice.
