Apply for a Bond University Higher Degree Scholarship

Bond University values its higher degree research student cohort and provides a substantial level of direct financial support to many students. Bond University allocates funds to support the financial costs of fee offset (waiver) and living stipends.

There are two key overarching principles for determining the distribution of scholarships among applicants. First, scholarships are to be awarded through a competitive merit-based process. Second, scholarship applicants are to be treated equitably and fairly, regardless of their research discipline, and regardless of the source of their scholarship funding.

Bond University has a merit-based approach to determining which students are eligible for a scholarship. A scholarship will only be offered to students who possess excellent academic merit and research potential. Being provided an offer of entry into the PhD program does not guarantee that a student will receive a scholarship

The University places a focus on commencing full time on campus PhD students only for living stipend scholarships. Masters students are not eligible to apply for HDR Scholarships.

Higher Degree Scholarships available:

Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Scholarship
Bond University Postgraduate Research Scholarships
  • The 2023¬†full-time stipend rate for both scholarship categories will be¬†$29,863¬†per annum (indexed annually)
