The scholarship program for the Graduate certificate in NLP is available to any potential student that can display genuine need or meritorious application to justify a reduction in tuition fees.
Scholarships range from a partial scholarship of up to $6000 to a full scholarship that covers all tuition fees (except admin, course materials and compliance charges of $695 ).
Scholarships Based on Need
Need based scholarships are generally assessed on the basis of financial circumstance. They may apply to applicants that are still studying, single parents, low income families or any other circumstance where the payment of full tuition fees would adversely impact individuals or their dependents.
Scholarships based on Merit
Meritorious Scholarships are awarded on the basis of the intended application of course content and have a higher level of scrutiny than needs based applications. Where particularly noble applications of NLP are identified, well thought out and there is a planned implementation proposed; a scholarship can be awarded to facilitate the optimal execution of the project.
These scholarships are generally a unit by unit scholarship that requires agreed milestones to be met to qualify for additional fee reduction on subsequent units. Where milestones are not met the scholarship can be revoked.
