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.

Scholarships are open across two rounds, Summer and Winter, and 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.

Most scholarships are awarded to a single recipient. Selection decisions are made by a panel comprising a representative of the Dean and senior department staff.

Apply by completing an online application addressing the selection criteria. You can expect an outcome of your application approximately four to six weeks after the closing date.
