If you didn't get a scholarship

We have earned an international reputation for research with impact that extends beyond academic rankings and awards and reaches into the lives of people around the world. As a result, demand for our centrally-managed research places and supporting scholarship opportunities is very high.

If you were unsuccessful in securing a Monash scholarship, there are some options that may be available to you.

Always Get feedback

Each academic unit and faculty is responsible for ranking its applicants. If you were unsuccessful, you need to contact the academic unit and/or faculty you applied through for feedback on your application. This will help you understand the outcome and prepare you for any future applications.

Commence a graduate research degree without a scholarship

Log into the graduate research degree and scholarship online application page, using your applicant ID number and password to confirm that you want Monash to continue to process your admission application.

Apply again

Unsuccessful applicants can reapply in the next scholarship round. You may copy an existing application rather than create a new one. Instructions on how to do this are in our step-by-step guide. If you need further assistance, please contact us online.

You should contact your academic unit and/or faculty to discuss your application and how you can increase your likelihood of securing a scholarship, prior to resubmitting.

Other options within Monash

If you do not qualify for our centrally-awarded scholarships, you may have other opportunities to gain support for your research at Monash.

  • Most faculties offer both living allowance and tuition awards to students who may have narrowly missed out on a scholarship in the central selection rounds. If this is the case, you will be contacted.
  • Some Schools/Departments also offer scholarships throughout the year, including Monash Departmental Scholarships or Monash Research Scholarships. These are funded through research grants and other outside sources.
