OUA is pleased to announce the awarding of scholarships totalling $120,000 to undergraduate, postgraduate, and indigenous students for the academic year 2012.

The OUA Scholarship recipients are selected based on outstanding academic achievement. We received a large number of applications for the scholarships.

This year, the overall standard of applications was incredibly high. A significant number of applicants obtained 'High Distinction' in their academic results, many with marks over 90 per cent - a stunning achievement.
