Applying for a scholarship


Applying for a scholarship can seem daunting.

That's why we've put together an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide to take you through the process and help you make the most of your potential and circumstances.

You usually apply for a scholarship when applying for a research degree, so make sure you check your eligibility for both a course and a scholarship before applying.

What happens if your application is not successful?

A university of our standing attracts a lot of interest from research students, and our scholarships are in great demand. If you were unlucky in your first application, don't worry – you have other options.

The Monash Graduate Education (MGE) only handles scholarships for postgraduate research degrees, but being a researcher is not your only postgraduate study option.
