Scholarships for Engineering and IT graduate researchers

Thanks to the generosity of our donors and supporters, you’re able to apply for a wide range of scholarships.

Familiarise yourself with Scholarship Rounds

Scholarships are open across two rounds, Summer and Winter. Occasionally a Spring round will follow to open any new or unfilled scholarship during the year. Scholarships are predominantly to either:

  • Provide funds for general research or a particular project, or
  • For overseas travel to conduct field work or visit other universities and research institutions.
Prepare your documents

Once you have narrowed down the scholarships that you are eligible for, apply by completing an online application addressing the selection criteria.


Our scholarships are competitive, and often we have several students applying to be considered for the scholarships. As such, if your application is shortlisted, you may be invited to attend an interview.

Selection Decisions

The scholarships will be awarded, usually to a single recipient, following a panel meeting comprising a representative of the Dean, and senior department staff. Some scholarships may require you to attend an interview. This will be indicated in the information about the scholarship.

Receive an Outcome

You can expect to receive an outcome of your application approximately 6-8 weeks following the closing date.
