Ma & Morley Scholarship Program

Announced by the University of Newcastle on 3 February 2017, the Ma & Morley Scholarship Program at UON is a new life-changing program made possible through the generous philanthropic support of the Jack Ma Foundation.

The largest philanthropic commitment in the history of the University, the Jack Ma Foundation will give US$20million to fund the groundbreaking Ma & Morley Scholarship Program at the University of Newcastle.


The Ma & Morley Scholarship Program is a values-based scholarship program, which aims to inspire, educate, and cultivate the next generation of globally aware and socially conscious Australian leaders.

The Program is unique in the Australian higher education sector, as the scholarship goes beyond the financial support of the student and also provides a comprehensive personal engagement and enrichment program to develop key networks and friendships, as well as experience important practical training to equip them for leadership in the global environment.

More information will be available soon.
