Scholarships - Wade Institute

We can help make your Wade Institute experience possible

We’re committed to making sure our programs are accessible to everyone. If you think finances may be a barrier to you joining us, get in touch to discuss how we can help you. We offer a generous scholarship program across all of our courses, including the University of Melbourne’s Master of Entrepreneurship, UpSchool, and VC Catalyst. Additional financial assistance is available for Master of Entrepreneurship students with a high financial need.

“This scholarship enabled me to move interstate and leave work commitments behind to fully immerse myself in the world of entrepreneurship. I look forward to developing the processes, techniques and skills required to generate solutions to real world problems that I am passionate about.”

Master of Entrepreneurship Scholarships & Financial Assistance

Successful applicants with an offer of a place may be eligible to apply for a limited number of scholarships and financial assistance offered by Wade Institute and Ormond College. These are partial grants designed to assist with costs associated with undertaking the program and are not intended to cover tuition fees.


Scholarship funding of $5,000 to $15,000 is available to help Master of Entrepreneurship students with living and learning expenses. 

Wade Institute is located on the Ormond College campus, a thriving entrepreneurial and academic precinct with access to seven meals a week, on-site gym, counselling services, resident academics and weekly social and sporting activities.
