Australia: Still time to apply for Deakin’s 2008 scholarships

Deakin University in Victoria, Australia, offers 32 scholarships every year to high achieving students through their International Scholarship Program (DUISP).

Worth $5,000 for each year of study, it is open to applicants on all courses and all campuses. Some 2008 DUISP scholarships are still available for students beginning their studies in the July semester this year. To apply, you must already be eligible to study on your course with Deakin University and have an Australian student visa.

The award is based purely on academic merit, to allow high-achieving students from around the world the chance to study at one of Australia’s leading universities.

Deakin University has four campus locations in Victoria – one in the cosmopolitan city of Melbourne, and the others on the coast of Victoria in Geelong and Warrnambool. It offers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, excellent research facilities and international student support.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Firstly I would like to intruduce my self to you.

My complet name is : Alberto Correia
Date of birth : Timor Leste 9th May 1985
Local address: Delta IV Comoro, Dili barat, Timor Leste
Nationality: Timorense (East Timor people)
Occupation : A student of Civil Engineering (Technical High School graduated 2004)

Email : [email protected]

I would like to submite my proposal to you and also I attached my Technical High School Certificate and my Baptismal Certificate.
Here is my proposal, and I am sorry with my english...


Our country Timor Leste is a new country and too young, because we just got our independence day on 20th May 2002 seven years ago. It means that this country needs many developments in many areas and departments, such as: engineering area, economically, technological, social, healt, education political, tourism, agricultor etc. Through the all departments and areas above, this country could get its development and can grows up like another country. One of the important department is engineering. So I will prefer to the engineering area because my backround is from Technical High School.

I am as a sitizen of this country I have to contribute my self to develop this country with the skills and knowledge that I gaind in my Technical High School. But the skill that I hava is not enough, that is way I am coming to you to ask your help and support to supporting me in oreder I could continue my study over University. Because I belive that after I graduate from university I can learn and gain more knowledge and skills. Through the University I can also develop my skill and knowledge to become high.

Since I was a child I have dremt to become an engineer in civil construction area. But recently I do not prove yet it because my family could not support me. And if I could get any possibility from you I would like to prove it soon as possible. Even I got many problems in my life since I had graduated from my technical high school 2004, but I will continue to observe and looking for many wayses to get scholarship or financial support. I would like to become an engineer in one day to develop my new country East Timor.

If I could get your support, actualy I would like to continue my study in this country but because in my observation all universities here doesn't has practicalities an equipments, daoesn't has laboratory practicality, library or we can say uncopletly facilities and etc..

In my plan if I could get any possibility from you in this time I would like to continue my study over Indonesian country at GADJAH MADA UNIVERSITY (UGM) in Yokyakarta as soon as possible. The reason why I chose Indonesia to seeking knowledge over there, it is because they have complet facilities, such as: an equipment tools for practicality, laboratory, library etc. I belive that when I finishing my study over Indonesia I will bring more knowledge and skills that I gaind to my country. And in the same time I can contribute my self to this country.

In my request I have puted amount money. With this money I will use it to pay my university, rent house, food, buying books, trasnportation from my country to Indonesia and to treat also my documets and etc.

I think that is my proposal and hopefuly may you will help me to consider my situation.

Thank you very much,

Best regards.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a physically disabled student of Bangladesh. Due to polio disease I got this disability. There is a major problem in the hip joint and the knee of my left leg. This is why I have to limp badly while walking. At present the muscle strength of my both legs has been getting weak gradually and due to walk in limping my backbone have been bent which resulting me no longer to walk for long distance. I use a single elbow crutch to support me in walking but it does not help me properly.

In order to overcome my physical disability and thus starting a new life I got admitted in NCC Education, UK in distance learning to complete two international diplomas related computing and 1 year before I have completed these diplomas. The result of those diplomas is good and I was also given an award named 'ROLL OF HONOUR' for my good result.

Since that I am working as a programming language teacher in an institute. Besides I am also working as a free-lancing software developer. Now I intend to get more higher education in computing and would like to complete my BSc (Hons) in Computer Science so that I am able to learn more deeply which will lead me to build a good career.

My country is very poor and our Govt. universities do not allow mature students to get admitted in their courses. But I am 27 years old. Due to physical disability my studies were hampered for several times.

This is why I intend to get admitted in any reputed university in the subject of BSc (Hons) in Computer Science.

Unfortunately my father is not financially able to support my study in India as he is a low earning primary school teacher. Already he has raised a loan of big amount to enable me in study under NCC Education, UK. Now it is completely impossible for him to give me funds. But I need and dream to have higher education as it is needed to make me more competitive for the good job market.

This is why I am writing this letter to the all who view this regularly. Is there any one who can arrange me fundings so that I am able to study in India to get Hons degree to make me more competitive for a good job?

Yours sincerely,
Mohammad Nasir Uddin

I would like to continue my study in abroad, but now I'm still the fourth semester in my university. I hope next two years, I can apply and be accepted to study overseas. that is my dream. is there any scholarship for international students and how to get it!
