Scientia PhD Scholarship opportunities

The UNSW Scientia PhD Scholarship Scheme is part of UNSW's dedication to harnessing cutting-edge research to solve complex problems and improve the lives of people in local and global communities.

Scientia PhD scholars will have a strong commitment to making a difference in the world with demonstrated potential for contributing to the social engagement and/or global impact pillars of the UNSW 2025 Strategy. The Scientia Scheme is targeted, in that applicants will apply to a specific research area with an identified supervisory team and application is by nomination.

  • Work on high quality research projects with the best supervisory teams in world class environments
  • $40K a year stipend for four years
  • Tuition fees covered for the full 4 year period
  • Coaching and mentoring will form a critical part of your highly personalised leadership development plan
  • Up to $10k each year to build your career and support your international research collaborations
  • At least 5 of these scholarships will be reserved for Indigenous research candidates. 

There are nine strategic research areas supported by the Scheme with a wide range of projects.
