Many APCD students persuing their Masters or PhDs are successful in obtaining scholarships to fully or partially fund their study in Canberra. It should be noted however that candidates who wish to pursue part-time study are often ineligible for scholarships.
The ANU funds and administers a range of scholarships for domestic PhD students (i.e., citizens of Australia and New Zealand and permanent residents of Australia). See the Division of Registrar & Student Services website for further details. The ANU College of Asia and the Pacific will also provide a "PhD top-up" to the value of $10,000 per annum for outstanding recipients of the Australia Postgraduate Award (APA).
Please be aware that to be eligible for one of these scholarships, your application to the ANU must be submitted by 31 October.
The most common form of funding for international students comes from AusAID. However, prospective students for both Masters and PhD level study with APCD are encouraged to look at a variety of potential funding sources, such as;
- Australian government
- home government
- international agencies
- foundations and corporations
- home country universities
- Australian missions.
A good place to start searching is the Joint Academic Scholarships On-line Network (JASON).
