Cotutelle MQRES Scholarships

As part of its international strategy, Macquarie University promotes joint PhD supervision programs (known as "Cotutelle" in French) with world's leading universities. This allows the possibility of getting two PhD degrees for the same research work, one from Macquarie University and the other from a European, Asian, North American or South American university. Cotutelle students are eligible to apply for Cotutelle MQRES scholarships which provide the usual MQRES conditions such as full tuition waiver, a living allowance, tax exempt, plus one economy return airfare between the cities of the two universities. If you are about to start a PhD program or are in the early stages of a PhD program at your university, you may also be eligible to apply. For more information see here.

For other scholarship opportunities please check the information on the Higher Degree Research Office website and how to apply for PhD.
