Competitive Selection Process

Scholarships are awarded based on an applicant’s academic record, research output and prior research experience.

Priority will also be given to applicants who:

  • hold an Australian or New Zealand bachelor’s degree with First Class Honours (H1) or qualifications and/or research experience deemed equivalent by the University;
  • have not completed a graduate research masters or doctoral degree at the same course level (for example, are applying to undertake a second doctoral degree);
  • are or will be enrolling via internal (on-campus) mode;
  • entitled to a maximum scholarship duration of more than 12 months equivalent fulltime as a result of prior enrolment in a graduate research degree;
  • have not previously held an Australian Government or Monash-funded Postgraduate Research Award for more than six months.

If your qualifications don’t meet the H1 level, your experience as a researcher could be considered equivalent. Check our eligibility equivalencies for more details.
