Once you have enrolled, you will need to complete the scholarship banking details form so we may start your scholarship payments. Note: Payments can only be made into an Australian bank account in your name.
If you are enrolled on a part-time basis, and your scholarship has not been awarded for part-time study, you will need to convert to full-time before your payments are able to commence.
Your scholarship payments are paid into your nominated Australian bank account on a fortnightly basis. You can download a list of those dates here.
To ensure the Monash Graduate Research Office is able to suspend or resume your scholarship payments in time for the affected pay period, any necessary forms need to submitted to our office no later than 10am on the Thursday preceding each pay day.
The stipend rate for centrally-allocated scholarships increases from 1 January each year. The stipend update is usually processed in late January each year. The current rates are available here.
Unless specifically requested, payslips will not be printed nor supplied to new commencing awardees.
If you require a copy of your pay slip/advice, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Full Name
- Date of Birth
If you have any queries regarding payments received, please contact us at email@example.com.
Please note that students on scholarships are not able to access or view payslips via ESS.
Payment summaries for scholarships are issued to part-time awardees only at the end of every financial year.
Should you require a payment summary to be issued again, you will need to contact Monash HR on firstname.lastname@example.org, stating your full name, date of birth, student ID, home address, reasons why another payment summary is required and the year it is required for.
If, as a student you are also a staff member, and require a payment summary as a staff member, you will also need to provide your employee/staff number.
Please note that full-time scholarship awardees are not issued payment summaries.
All students receive a Fees Statement/Tax Invoice which shows fee and enrolment details for the calendar year. Tuition fees (for international students) are assessed up to the maximum duration of a student’s research degree (4 years full time equivalent) regardless of their thesis submission date.
The dates for each research quarter are as follows:
|Research Quarter||Start Date||End Date|
|RQ1||1 January||31 March|
|RQ2||1 April||30 June|
|RQ3||1 July||30 September|
|RQ4||1 October||31 December|
If you are a MITS, MIPRS or RTP Fees Offset (International) scholarship holder, your tuition fees will be covered up to the end date of your scholarship. However, after your tuition scholarship ends you will be liable for tuition fees and will receive a Fees Statement/Tax Invoice from Student Finance.
You can review your extension entitlements in the RTP Scholarship Procedures. If an extension or a variation to your enrolment is approved, you will have your fees re-assessed and an updated Fees Statement/Tax Invoice may be issued.
Once you submit your thesis, you will not be liable for tuition fees for any research quarter thereafter. Your enrolment load and fees will be adjusted based on your thesis submission date and an updated Fees statement issued. You can apply for a refund for any fees paid in excess if applicable.
You may contact Monash Connect if you require further assistance with the information contained in your Fees Statement/Tax Invoice (including the payment due dates).
This really all depends on the type of scholarship you are receiving. For further information on Centrelink and taxation of your scholarship(s) can be found here.
