The Gerald Frank Brown scholarship has been established by the Government of Western Australia in cooperation with the universities of WA to financially assist high-achieving European students to study in Western Australia through a formal exchange program (inbound). The scholarship funds also provide for Western Australian university students to participate in a student exchange program with universities in the European Economic Community (outbound).

The scholarship offers a one time payment of $2,000. For European (inbound) recipients this will be after arriving in Western Australia. For Western Australian (outbound) recipients it will be prior to leaving for Europe.
