Book Subsidy Scheme


The Book Subsidy Scheme is a collaboration between Murdoch Guild and Murdoch University.

Eligible students can apply for the subsidy each semester. Successful applicants will receive  a voucher which is valid for that semester only. The vouchers can be used to purchase essential textbooks, and can be redeemed at the University Bookshop or the Murdoch Guild’s second-hand bookshop,  which currently operates  out of the Amenities Building.

*Please note that if you are a South Street student, you will need to collect your voucher from the Amenities building.

Applications are now CLOSED. Please find a list of successful applicants below.

Please note that there has been an increased number of  applications this semester.. Applications are assessed using specific criteria and students facing significant barriers to education are prioritised. If you have been unsuccessful this semester, please apply again next semester.

If your student number is listed below, you have been awarded a book subsidy voucher. Please present your student ID at the Guild reception in Amenities 490 in order to collect your voucher.
