The US Studies Centre and Perth USAsia Centre Scholarships

The United States Studies Centre and the Perth USAsia Centre will offer some partial scholarships to support outstanding students participating in the DC Placement Program. The Centres will determine the number and total value of the scholarships. Students wishing to be considered for a partial scholarship are required to complete the scholarship question on the application form and if relevant, attach supporting documents. Scholarship recipients will be selected based on financial need, merit, leadership capabilities and extracurricular achievement.
