Monash University - China Scholarship Council (CSC) Doctoral Scholarship Program


Outline of Scheme

The China Scholarship Council and Monash University have established a collaborative scholarship program to attract high quality Chinese students to undertake PhD. Long-term research co-operation between Monash University and research-intensive Chinese universities is a further aim of the program.

A number of candidates each year will be awarded scholarships that cover tuition fees and provide a living allowance for up to three years in the first instance. Scholarship allowances also meet overseas student health cover (OSHC), visa application fees and the cost of a return international air fare between Australia and China.

Applications are now invited from eligible applicants.

Currently, the priority areas for these scholarships are:

  1. Agriculture and food security,
  2. Energy and environment,
  3. Life sciences and public health(especially emerging infectious diseases) including biotechnology,
  4. Governance and public policy reform,

  6. Economics and business,
  7. Engineering and architecture including urban planning,
  8. Applied social sciences including law and WTO-related areas
