Victoria University is dedicated to undertaking research that makes a significant positive impact to business and society.

Project-based scholarships

Victoria University offers a range of scholarships to undertake a PhD on a specific topic as part of an externally funded research project. Conditions, stipend values and funding sources vary for these types of projects.

Industry-supported scholarships

Victoria University will soon be launching a new program to enable us to work collaboratively with new and existing industry partners to:
