Our Young Leaders Program Scholarship for International Students

The Trinity College Young Leaders Program (YLP) Scholarship helps outstanding students who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity of tertiary education, to experience university life. 

As Trinity College is committed to improving the educational outcomes of international students we are expanding our overall scholarship program, with the aim of providing 24 full scholarships across the YLP, Foundation Studies program and Residential College within the next five years. 

To fund these scholarships, we rely on the generous support of donors, many who have seen the positive impact Trinity College has had on their children and friends, or even themselves, and wish to give back. 

We hope you will consider donating to help us support students of exceptional promise from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

On the path to a world-class education

Each year more than 300 students participate in this life-changing academic and residential program. Students live on campus at Trinity College and participate in lectures and workshops with like-minded young leaders from around the world. They’ll get a taste for life at Australia’s leading university, with the support structure of the University of Melbourne’s oldest residential college, Trinity College. 

You can help change lives

Your contribution to the Trinity College Young Leaders Program scholarship, no matter how big or small, can have a life-changing impact on an exceptional, and underprivileged, student from South East Asia or China. You can help students experience the best of Australia’s academic and residential life, while also allowing them to make new friends and giving them the confidence to change their community and the world.

On behalf of Trinity College and the students we support, we thank you for your generosity. Fill out the attached donation form to make a positive change to a deserving young person’s life.

Rena's experience of the program

YLP is such a wonderful life-changing experience. The mentors, fellow young leaders and staff are all so warm and friendly. It gave me the chance to look at things from other perspectives, since we all come from various backgrounds and cultures. I’ve found my second home and family in this program.
