Crescent Foundation Leadership Scholarship

Western Sydney University

The Crescent Foundation Leadership Scholarships were established to assist refugees and provide life-changing educational opportunities. Each year, thousands of refugees arrive in Australia seeking a better life. One the many challenges faced is the affordability of university education. Whether starting a new journey through university education or the need to up-skill an existing degree obtained overseas; the Crescent Foundation aims to assist in facilitating the transition into the workforce and indeed Australian society. The Academy engages with high-achieving students to maximise their potential through programs that support and encourage academic enrichment, leadership and professional development, and community citizenship both locally and globally.


Applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia, who have been granted a permanent humanitarian visa within the last five years. Have received an offer or be currently enrolled full-time or part-time in any year of an undergraduate degree or postgraduate coursework degree at Western Sydney University. Demonstrate academic potential through a minimum ATAR of 85 or equivalent for new students or through a GPA of 5 or higher for continuing students. Non-current school leaver applicants will be considered on the basis of work experience and educational qualifications
