ISI students & scholarships

Victoria University has consolidated its research activity. From 2018 research of the Institute for Sustainability & Innovation (ISI) is located within the Institute for Sustainable Industries & Liveable Cities.

We have several postgraduate students who are currently undertaking their PhD studies in ISI research related projects.

There are also a range of scholarships available for postgraduate students who are undertaking a higher degree by research.


A scholarship provides financial assistance to support you while you study. Some scholarships provide a stipend that covers fees and living allowances, while others only provide partial funding.

There is a range of scholarships for postgraduate students who are undertaking a higher degree by research.
