Do you have the potential to become a leader in your field and to help build a better future for Australia?

Applications are now open for the 2017 John Monash Scholarships

It is your chance to obtain up to $195,000 (tax free) over three years to assist your overseas postgraduate study.

The John Monash Scholarships are not limited by gender, age, field of study or choice of overseas university.

John Monash Scholars are real people determined to build a better future for Australia.

Those awarded a John Monash Scholarship have a plan – a plan that combines their field of study, their personal skills and their ambition into real solutions for real problems.

They identify key issues and areas of potential high-value improvement. And, they don’t just identify problems – they develop realistic, practical pathways to create solutions.


To be eligible to apply for a John Monash Scholarship you must be an Australian Citizen. 

Also, you must have completed or be about to complete an undergraduate degree from an Australian University, such as Deakin University. 

And, be able to undertake postgraduate study at an overseas university commencing in the calendar year following the year of application and selection. (You do not need to have already been accepted to an overseas university to apply for this scholarship.) 

Finally, we will need to hear from referees, who agree that you have the potential to be a John Monash Scholar.

Mid-career professionals are encouraged to apply.


Applications are now open.

You may apply for a John Monash Scholarship by going online to the website – – and completing the official application.

It is a good idea to begin your application early so you can dedicate the required time.

The closing date for applications is 1 August 2016.
