One of Australia’s premier scholarship programs

The UWA Fogarty Scholarship Program aims to
develop a network of significant leaders. 


The UWA Fogarty Scholarship Program is a joint investment between the Fogarty Foundation and the University of Western Australia in the future leaders of this state.

In 2017, UWA and the Fogarty Foundation celebrate 14 years of the scholarship program.

We now have 55 Scholars and 71 Alumni studying and working in a variety of fields.

The UWA Fogarty Scholarship Program is enriching our community by investing in exceptional young people who use their skills, abilities and commitment to lead positive change in our community, state and nation.
Established in 2004, the program is a joint initiative of the Fogarty Foundation and The University of Western Australia.
10 new scholarships are awarded each year to students who study across a range of disciplines. These comprehensive scholarships include a tailored leadership program for the Scholar’s entire university degree that focuses on developing transformative leadership skills in each of the Scholars.
The program is one of Australia’s premier scholarship programs, working with local and international leaders and partners to provide Scholars and Alumni with comprehensive academic scholarships, enrichment opportunities, leadership development and strong networks.
Since 2004, the scholarships have educated and supported 125 young people who are now part of a cohort of like-minded young people who support and inspire each other.
