Fees and scholarships


We spend more than $47 million each year on postgraduate research scholarships.Monash Coat of Arms

It's an investment in the ideas and people behind them that will change the world – and it covers more than the cost of study.

We also offer living and other allowances, travel grants, publication grants, residential scholarships and more.

We offer more than 300 stipend (living-allowance) scholarships and 70 international tuition-paying scholarships at our main Monash-wide selection round, which opens on 1 June and closes on 31 October each year.

A second, annual mid-year round opens on 1 November and closes on 31 May, when we offer approximately 70 stipend scholarships and 15 international tuition-paying scholarships.

Our stipends and other allowances help with living and other costs, such as establishment costs if you receive certain awards and need to relocate from outside Victoria, including overseas.

If you're eligible but miss out on a Monash-wide scholarship, you're automatically considered for a faculty scholarship, which our 10 faculties offer to some of their research degree candidates. These awards could have additional eligibility requirements, which you can ask about when contacting a faculty about your proposed research project.

Our tuition scholarships for international students cover the cost of tuition fees, and in some cases include the cost of compulsory Overseas Student Health Cover. Please note that international students who are not awarded a scholarship which covers the cost of OSHC will be required to purchase the cover themselves. (Remember, the Research Training Scheme covers research course fees for Australian or New Zealand citizens and Australian permanent residents.)
