Applying for ILWS PhD Scholarships

ILWS Postgraduate Scholarships for 2018 intake.

Applications for 2018 scholarships closed on October 31, 2017 

The 2019 scholarship application process will open in September 2018. Please check back then.

Each year the Institute for Land, Water and Society (ILWS) awards two higher degree by research scholarships to students keen to work in targeted research areas.

ILWS research topics include socio-economic, socio-cultural and/or ecological issues associated with our four research themes - Biodiversity Conservation, Environmental Water, Rural and Regional Communities, and Sustainable Development (International). Projects need not be multi or interdisciplinary, but proposals that encompass integrated approaches will be viewed favorably.

If your research is aligned with the ILWS Research Themes we invite you to apply for an Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship-Institute for Land, Water and Society (AGRTP-ILWS).

The University's Scholarship Application Guide covers the process of assessment and allocation of awards, and outlines the criteria for initial assessment of applications. 

Essential -  Applying for an AGRTP-ILWS scholarship is a separate process to Applying for Admission to the University. Applicants awarded an Offer of Scholarship cannot access the scholarship entitlement until they have been made, and accepted, an Offer of Admission into an HDR program.

For further information please contact the Research Office at or 02 6933 2578

Highly Recommended -  Before submitting an application you should make contact with potential supervisors that are members of ILWS (List of Members) to confirm that they are able to supervise and that your proposed research topic fits with the aims of ILWS. 

For further information pertaining to ILWS please contact Margrit Beemster on or phone 0260 519 653.
