Receiving the Western Australia’s Premier’s University Scholarship
The Western Australian Premier’s University Scholarship, funded by the Government of Western Australia, is a scholarship to support international students with a one-off payment of $50,000 to use towards course fees and other university costs. The scholarship is awarded to two international students from UWA each year, up until 2026.
