The scholarships, worth up to $20,000 each, will be awarded to students commencing undergraduate and postgraduate programs in 2022 on the basis of equity or merit.
Scholarship recipients will receive $10,000 in their first year of study and $5,000 in subsequent years of their degree (up to 3 years).
The scholarships have been introduced in recognition of the challenges that many people have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Students finishing high school this year experienced repeated disruptions through Year 11 and 12, while effects on employment have prompted many university graduates to consider postgraduate study.
By introducing these new scholarships, Notre Dame hopes to enable twenty prospective students to pursue their education goals.
