International students face unique challenges in beginning their research studies, which is why we offer a range of scholarships to make research at Monash more accessible.
Many international candidates will be eligible for a Monash Graduate Scholarship and other Monash scholarships, but we offer several awards specifically for them.
In all cases, you must meet the eligibility requirements to be considered for these awards.
Note: All International students are required to have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). Unless a student is awarded a scholarship which covers the cost of OSHC, this cover must be purchased by the student or their sponsor. Scholarship offer letters will clearly state if OSHC is covered by the scholarship.

In July 2008, Universities Australia and the Government of the Republic of Chile established the 'Chile-Australia Agreement on Human Capital Development'. The agreement supports up to 500 fully funded Chilean PhD and Masters students each year to study in Australian universities.
Monash supports the initiative by offering students access to both master's and PhD programs.
The Chilean Ministry of Education's Spanish language website Conicyt has more information.
The China Scholarship Council and Monash University have established a collaborative scholarship program to attract high-quality Chinese students to undertake PhD studies with us.
A number of candidates each year will be awarded scholarships, which cover tuition fees, a living allowance for up to three years in the first instance, Overseas Student Health Cover, visa application fees and the cost of a return air fare between Australia and China.

The Endeavour Awards are the centrepiece of the Australian Government's internationally competitive, merit-based scholarship program.
They provide opportunities for citizens of the Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Europe and the Americas to undertake study, research and professional development in Australia.
They also allow Australians to study abroad.
Applications for the awards are made directly to the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) and not through Monash University.
