The RMIT Welcome Scholarship in conjunction with the Sam and Nina Narodowski Asylum Seeker Scholarship has been established in recognition of the financial hardship that is faced by individuals from asylum seeker backgrounds.
Eligible people seeking asylum looking to study full-time in an RMIT vocational or degree program are encouraged to apply.
The scholarships consist of full program tuition fees and Student Services and Amenities Fees (SSAF) paid per semester and/or a living allowance for the duration of the program.
Note: Existing RMIT Welcome Scholarship holders - if you are changing your program for 2023, you will need to re-apply for the 2023 RMIT Welcome Scholarship to be considered for the living allowance and the payment of both the tuition fees and SSAF for your new program (please ensure you apply for your new program by 1 December 2022).
There are a limited number of tuition fee waiver scholarships available. The number of scholarships available is dependent on the program you will be studying in 2023 and the final number of scholarship places available may be subject to change:
|Number of tuition fees available in 2023||Study/Living allowance value||Program~|
|3 (1 x College of Business and Law, 1 x College of STEM, 1 x College of Design and Social Context)||$15,000^||Bachelor degree programs|
|1 x College of Vocational Education||$15,000^||Associate degree programs|
|9||$5,000||Certificate IV, diploma, advanced diploma or associate degree programs|
|$2,500||Certificate IV in Tertiary Preparation|
