How is the scholarship money applied?
The Centre for Social Impact apportions the total scholarship awarded equally across each of your courses to complete the Graduate Certificate in Social Impact. The scholarship recipient is required to pay the balance amount for each course based on their chosen university’s course fees.
Please note: If you are unable to fund your study without a scholarship, and you are not awarded one, you are under no obligation to proceed with study and you can withdraw or defer your university offer without financial or academic penalty before the government issued Census date.
