This project is a part of the university's 'Changing Lives' programme, which aims to make a significant difference in the lives of deserving students in India by providing chances for postgraduate and undergraduate courses in any discipline, with no time restriction on the study. The programme seeks to empower exceptional individuals who have exhibited outstanding academic performance and well-rounded achievements to study onshore at Deakin University in Australia.

The programme also aims to give back to India while assisting in the development of the knowledge and experience required to have a significant impact on society. It also has the potential to change the course of the lives of deserving students, enabling them to realise their academic and personal potential while also making a positive contribution to society.

While on campus, the scholars are also accepted into the Vice Chancellor's Professional Excellence Programme (VCPEP), which affords them the unmatched chance to represent the University and themselves in important forums alongside senior officials from the public and private sectors as well as from academia.
