NHMRC Postgraduate Scholarships
The aim of the NHMRC Postgraduate Scholarships scheme is to support outstanding health and medical graduates early in their career so that they can be trained to conduct research that is internationally competitive and to develop a capacity for original independent research within Australia. This is achieved by NHMRC funding successful applicants to attain a research based postgraduate degree (Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or a Masters Degree).
Stipend rates for scholarships commencing in 2021 are:
An allowance of $2,250 p.a. is provided to assist with the purchase of consumables and for travel to relevant conferences.
Scholarship recipients receive a thesis allowance of $500 in the final year.
The Faculties have their own approval and review processes for grants under this scheme. They may also have deadlines for submission of draft applications that are earlier than Research Services deadlines. Please ensure that you contact your Faculty, as early as possible, for information on process and deadlines. Faculty contacts:

Changes to Eligibility for DVCR Co-Funding
Eligibility for the DVCR Co-Funding Scheme is now contingent upon on-time submission of grant applications by the Macquarie University submission date. Many applications for external funding require cash and in-kind contributions from the host institution in order to be considered for funding. In most cases, researchers request cash contributions, such as project support funds, funding for research associates, scholarships and major equipment, from the DVCR via the DVCR Co-Funding Scheme to support their external funding applications. To be eligible to request this DVCR Co-Funding, grant applications must be submitted internally, via Pure, by the Macquarie University submission date.
