Selection Criteria

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit by the University Research Scholarships Committee (the Committee), a subcommittee of the University Research Committee.

Application Process

Applicants can apply through the link:

Offers of Victoria PhD Scholarships will be made approximately six weeks after each closing date in March, July and November of the year of application. Because some applicants may in the event decline the offer of a Scholarship with the result that further offers have to be made, it is possible that some applicants will not be finally notified of the success or otherwise of their applications three months after application. Please provide a clear and correct email address.

Applicants, other than those who have completed all of their study at Victoria, must include a certified copy of their academic record from other institutions with this application.

Scholarship recipients must sign a Postgraduate Scholarships Contract agreeing to abide by the attached regulations. Recipients shall be required to devote themselves full-time to their programme 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.
