Generous postgraduate law scholarships
Sydney Law School is offering scholarships for students who wish to continue into postgraduate study

To support lifelong learning, reward high achievers and assist those in need, we are offering three postgraduate scholarships ranging from $10,000 to $50,000.

Our scholarships are designed to ease financial difficulties and create a positive student experience, allowing you to focus on your study.

In addition to financial benefits, our scholarship program offers opportunities to connect with academics and industry experts, undertake internships, engage with real-world projects as part of your degree, participate in exchange programs, and help you graduate with a highly regarded degree and strong employment opportunities.

Lucy Lester is enrolled in the LLM and is a recipient of the Ross Waite Parsons Scholarship.

“I am a solicitor at the Legal Aid Commission and I will complete the degree part-time over the next two years. This assistance significantly eased the stress I felt about paying for the degree. I am honoured to be the recipient of an award in the name of Professor Parsons. I understand that he had a brilliant legal mind and a passion for education, and I will endeavour to emulate some of Professor Parsons’ qualities in the next two years. I really cannot thank you enough" says Lucy. 

Sydney Law School’s scholarships provide life-changing opportunities and aim to support both domestic and international students so that they can reach their full potential, achieve their career goals, and follow their passions. We attract the world’s best students and help them pursue further study by eliminating financial barriers.

Without the scholarship, I would have been unable to pursue further study in jurisprudence and the philosophy of law, which has always been a great passion of mine – and certainly I would have been unable to have such a singular focus on my studies, which was reflected in my results.
