Sydney Law School offers $500,000 in scholarships

22 October 2018
Postgraduate, juris doctor and undergraduate scholarships
We are proud to offer our students and graduates more than half a million dollars worth of scholarships for law study.

Our twenty-one scholarships for domestic and international students recognise potential, assist those in need and reward high achievement across our undergraduate, juris doctor, postgraduate, postgraduate research and Oxford partnership programs.

Commenting on the value of a postgraduate scholarship, Ross Waite Parsons Scholarship awardee Jaison K John said: “As an international student from India, the scholarship provided me with the financial support to pursue the Master of Laws program at the University of Sydney.

“The program was taught by world-class experts, which enabled me to think globally and not just locally. I’m now working in the legal department at ACWA Power, contributing to various exciting projects, including the world’s largest concentrated solar power project in Dubai.”

Sydney Law School’s scholarships offer you the financial freedom to focus on your study and other commitments. Scholarships range in value from $1,000 to support internships to up to $87,500 to support PhD study.

For Juris Doctor graduate, Elizabeth Toriola, the Wigram Allen JD Scholarship helped take the financial pressure off her degree. “During busy exam and clerkship periods, I was able to reduce my work load and not have to stress about expenses,” she said.

In addition to the financial benefit, our scholarship programs also offer opportunities to connect with our academic staff and other scholars, allow you to undertake internship and research opportunities while you study, and help you to graduate with a highly regarded degree and strong employment opportunities.

German national and recipient of the Ross Waite Parsons Scholarship, Stephanie Classmann, was offered a position as a sessional lecturer in Criminal Law and Legal Research at the Sydney Law School after finishing the Master of Laws program.

“Teaching and researching at a world-class university so early on in my career was a deeply rewarding experience which considerably reinforced my academic aspirations and provided an invaluable source of support and training in this regard. I am now undertaking a PhD in Law at the London School of Economics and Political Science,” said Stephanie.
