Additional candidature benefits
In addition to scholarships, Monash IT allocates funding to support all PhD and Master of Philosophy (MPhil) students enrolled at Australian campuses. Those studying in Australia receive a A$4000 for PhD and A$2000 for MPhil for the duration of the candidature. These funds can be used for travel, fieldwork and data collection, specialised training and equipment to support conducting your research.
We also pay for overseas health cover for our international graduate research students and their immediate family for the length of their visa while studying in Australia.
The stipend scholarship helped cover my living expenses throughout my graduate research journey, as well as the costs related to my PhD fieldwork. With this support, I was able to conduct rigorous data collection as part of my study.
I chose Monash because its collaborative, cross-disciplinary projects are creating real impact in our world. The foundation courses and workshops played a big role in advancing my understanding and skills as a researcher. And thanks to my standout supervisors, academics, peer groups and academic language specialist, all the support I needed was there – I only had to ask.
