Dean's scholar

“I’m absolutely delighted to be a Dean’s scholar at Macquarie Business School. The scholarship scheme isn’t only providing me with financial assistance, it’s also facilitating my participation in a dedicated enrichment program that involves professional development workshops, a mentoring program, and networking and social events.

With the support of the scholarship, I’ve been able to achieve five academic prizes within my double degree, as well as maintaining the highest-possible GPA. And as well as motivating me to achieve, the scholarship is enabling me to participate in a range of valuable extra-curricular activities, such as the Student Representative Program.“

Olivia Bailey, 2018 Dean’s Merit Scholar

“This scholarship has enabled me to create a smooth transition between high school and the responsibilities that full-time university brings.

Balancing work and full-time study can be difficult, however, the financial support offered by Macquarie has allowed me to ease my work commitments and take a more devoted approach to my studies. The scholarship has also strengthened my desire to achieve academic success as I have the backing of a University that believes in my potential and supports my future career aspirations.”
