The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) has partnered with the University of Melbourne and Medley Hall to introduce the DELWP Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship for students commencing a Bachelor of Design in the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning with a major in Urban Planning.
The scholarship aims to ensure a diversity of future urban planning professionals by supporting students with Indigenous Australian or financially disadvantaged backgrounds, as well as students from regional Victoria and Melbourne’s outer growth areas.
Planning plays a vital role in how we shape our urban environment, and the best way to ensure robust and inclusive urban planning is to have a diverse community of planning professionals to guide Victoria’s future.
The scholarship will support two students per year for the duration of their undergraduate study, and includes significantly subsidised accommodation at Medley Hall.
Our first scholarship recipient, Laura Brown, who is now well into her first year in the Bachelor of Design, said the scholarship had “made university more accessible” and “opened up possibilities” for her. Read about Laura’s experience studying a Bachelor of Design and how it has changed her future career direction.
Applications for Semester 2, 2017 scholarship are now closed and will reopen for Semester 1, 2018 on 7 August 2017. Keep updated by visiting: https://msd.unimelb.edu.au/bachelor-of-design-delwp-diversity-and-inclusion-scholarship
