HDR Scholarship-Bond University at Australia

What you need to now:

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.

Several scholarships are available to doctoral (Doctor of Philosophy and Professional Doctorate of Occupational Therapy) program students at Bond University. The current full-time stipend rate for all HDR scholarship categories as of 2023 is $29,863 AUD per annum. Please note that research master’s students are not eligible for any HDR scholarships.

As an international student, you must pay your tuition fees upfront at the beginning of each six-month enrolment period. Depending on your home country and citizenship, you may be able to pay for some of your tuition fees using loans or available discounts.

International students may also be eligible for a partial fee waiver. If approved, this waiver is valid for a maximum period of 4 years full-time study for doctoral programs, or two years full-time for research master’s programs. Fees may apply if dissertations are not submitted within these time frames.

  • Intend to study full time
  • Not have received an equivalent award or scholarship from the Australian Government designed to offset HDR fees
