Vice-Chancellor's Research Scholarships
Vice Chancellor's Postgraduate Research Scholarships are awarded to postgraduate researchers on the basis of academic merit, research potential and fit within one of the university's areas of research strength.
Applicants must: be Australian citizens or permanent residents; have completed at least 4 years of tertiary education studies at a high level of achievement; have achieved first class honours; enrol as a full-time student (part-time awards may be available for compelling social or medical reasons); have had their enrolment into the proposed degree accepted by the institution; and be pursuing a doctoral research degree. Preference will be given to students undertaking research in one of the university's areas of research strength. Students are ineligible to apply for an Vice-Chancellor's scholarship if they: have already completed a doctoral degree; have held a Victoria University Postgraduate Research Scholarship previously, unless it was terminated within 6 months of the commencement of benefits; or are receiving another equivalent award, scholarship or salary to undertake the proposed program ('equivalent' stipend is regarded as more than $14,000 per year).
The scholarship provides a stipend of $30,000 per year (incorporating the Australian Postgraduate Award), for up to 3 years.
