World Universities Ramsay Postgraduate Scholarship

Are you a high-achieving student and leader intent on securing a place in a graduate program overseas?

The experience of studying abroad at some of the world’s most coveted academic institutions is an experience like no other.

Our benefactor Paul Ramsay wanted to support young Australian leaders in their pursuit of this opportunity, so they could realise their goals and make their own unique contribution to Australian society.

Our World Universities Ramsay Postgraduate Scholarship supports young Australians to undertake graduate study at the world’s best universities (e.g. Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Harvard, Princeton, Bologna etc.) for one, two and, in select cases, three years of graduate coursework and/or research.

Levels of support are fully competitive with the Rhodes, John Monash, Fulbright and other major scholarships.

Value: AUD$90,000 p.a. 

The scholarship covers living and tuition fees and other related expenses.

Students applying for the scholarship will need to have secured a place in a graduate program abroad before finalising their application.

Please note that the scholarships are not awarded for undergraduate study, medical research (outside of a masters or PhD program), post-doctoral research, visiting fellowships, or any other research appointment.

They are not ordinarily available for part-time study or for Executive Education programs.


The past is insight. The future is in sight.
