Victoria University in Australia is offering international students who are seeking to continue their doctorate education the opportunity to apply for Ph.D. scholarships for 2019. The university offers 35 scholarships each year to encourage postgraduate research, and they are awarded on academic merit for 3 years. 

Eligibility criteria:

  1. For a student who has already been enrolled for a Doctorate at Victoria for more than three months at the time when the offer of a Scholarship is made, the maximum length of the Scholarship will be reduced at the discretion of the Research Scholarships Committee
  2. Applicants must devote themselves full-time to their program of research during the tenure of the scholarship and may not hold a position of emolument without the approval of the University Scholarships Committee. Approval may be given for scholarship recipients to undertake paid employment (usually tutoring) for up to a further 600 hours in addition to their contribution in any one calendar year. All requests to undertake part-time employment must be supported in writing by the supervisor
    Once the period of tenure of a scholarship has commenced, the University Scholarships Committee may, at its sole discretion, grant a scholarship recipient a deferment of their scholarship for a period not exceeding one year. In most cases, such a deferment will coincide with a formal suspension from their doctoral enrollment
    A scholarship shall be terminated if a scholarship recipient ceases to resume the aforesaid program of research within one month of the last day of the period of the deferment
  3. Applicants would normally be expected to have completed a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree with academic distinction equivalent to a First Class Honors degree at a New Zealand University
  4. The scholarship recipient must complete six monthly reports outlining their progress to date and ensure that copies of these reports are available to the Scholarships Office

Value of scholarship:

The university offers $23,500 stipend annually and tuition fees. The first such payment shall be made by the Scholarships Office as soon as practicable after confirmation of enrolment. Up to $200 may also be paid towards the cost of producing the thesis on proof of receipt. The thesis allowance entitlement will lapse if it is not taken up within four years of the original enrolment for Ph.D. including periods of suspension.
