Graduate Research International Scholarships

  Graduate Research International Scholarships


Graduate Research International Scholarships – We come from different places – from the inner cities to the Kimberley, and from over 140 different countries – to make Melbourne home.

We have different passions and ambitions. Some of us want to see beyond the stars; some of us are working to save what’s precious here on Earth. Some of us are driven to create new worlds in art or to carve a path in sport. The one thing we all have in common is a passion for changing what’s possible, and we know we can only do that together.

That’s why our community offers a huge variety of scholarships. Here are some ideas to get your search started.

 

Build your resume.

We have hundreds of prizes that are designed to reward hard work and achievement as you move through your course. From your first year in undergraduate study, through internships and all the way through to your PhD, you can win prizes that will help you concentrate on your studies. These prizes won’t just help you while you study – they’ll become an integral part of your CV.

Take your place in the world.

Our ‘Melbourne Model’ is structured for international flexibility, and we send over 1300 students abroad each year on semester, year or short term intensive programs. Graduate students can seek funding for their research overseas, to engage in and publish research, or to engage with colleagues at key conferences.
