Argyle Scholarship in Engineering

Established through a generous commitment by the Laidlaw Family, the Argyle Scholarship was established to support students from rural or regional Australia studying at the University of Melbourne. This scholarship is available to one Law, Engineering and Education student each year. It provides approximately $5,000 to a talented student who is experiencing financial disadvantage and pursuing the Master of Engineering. Preference will be given to students from a regional, rural or remote background.


To be eligible for this scholarship, you need to be:

  • An Australian Citizen or permanent resident
  • Enrolled in your first semester of the Master of Engineering
  • Experiencing financial need.

Preference will be given to students from rural or regional Australia who have relocated to pursue their studies. ‘Rural or regional’ is an area with a rating of RA2 or higher as defined by the Department of Health’s tool, Health Workforce Locator, using the 2016 ASGS Remoteness Areas filter.


One scholarship is available and is valued at $5,000.
