Hello!

I am going to be studying at the University of Western Australia in the Fall of 2017. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for scholarships or grants for international students wanting to get a master's in ecotourism. Any amount will help! Even advice on where to find scholarships would be helpful as well. I am a citizen of the US. Before I study in Australia I will be getting m divemaster certification in Thailand if that helps for anything.

Thanks!
Nancy

Hello Nancy

If I understood well, you are going to attend this Masters course:
http://www.studyat.uwa.edu.au/courses/master-of-ecotourism-coursework

I assume that you have already asked the relevant department at U. of Western Australia, as many scholarships tend to be offered for specific universities and degrees (rarely for Masters, usually for PhD) and to citizens of specific countries (usually of the global south). UWA also have a Research Grants Office ( http://www.research.uwa.edu.au/staff/rgo ) who may be able to advise you.

At https://ecoclub.com/jobs/vacancies-by-category/scholarships we have posted a few ongoing Scholarship Programs offered by various Organisations.

A few other resources:

Study in Australia has a general list of Scholarships for US students., at https://www.studyinaustralia.gov.au/usa/australian-education/scholarships/other-usa-scholarships although not all are specific to study in Australia.

Study in Australia also list about 800 specific Scholarships at
http://www.studyinaustralia.gov.au/SIASearch/SIAScholarshipsList.aspx?ModuleId=13&Keyword=

You may also try writing to RBGrants@education.gov.au with "IPRS" as the subject line to enquire about International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (as mentioned at http://education.gov.au/international-postgraduate-research-scholarships )

It is worth contacting the American Australian Association, http://www.americanaustralian.org/
and the US Embassy in Australia, which co-manages the
Australian-American Fulbright Scholarships https://au.usembassy.gov/education-culture/fulbright-in-australia/

Another strategy is to contact directly American companies in the (sustainable, adventure, cultural, indigenous) tourism sector, and perhaps other green sectors that are active in (Western) Australia, in case they are able to assist.

Tourism Western Australia, (http://www.tourism.wa.gov.au/Pages/ContactUs.aspx ) could perhaps advise on which are these companies.

I hope the above helps a little, please keep us posted on your progress.
