Alfred Deakin Scholarships in Law and Business Dean's Scholars Program are merit based scholarships that are specifically related to undergraduate programs.
Alfred Deakin Scholarships in Law
The Alfred Deakin Scholarships in Law were introduced in 2001, the year of celebrations for the centenary of Australian federation. Alfred Deakin, after whom the University is named, was not only Australia's second Prime Minister but also our first Attorney General.
Most appropriately, a small number of these scholarships will be awarded to the highest scoring students admitted to the Bachelor of Laws, as a single degree or combined with another degree such as the BA/LLB, BA (International Studies)/LLB, BCom/LLB and BSc/LLB.
These scholarships provide up to $2800 per year for four years of an LLB or five years of a combined law course, subject to academic performance, and the support of an academic mentor from the Law School.
