College of Engineering and Computer Science ANU PhD Scholarships - International


The College of Engineering and Computer Science invites prospective PhD students to apply for an ANU PhD scholarship to support their Doctor of Philosophy program of study. The College offers research in a wide range of disciplines including the Engineering theme areas of Energy, Fabrication, Information and Materials and the Computer Science theme areas of Intelligence, Systems and Theory.

Each scholarship will provide a full stipend for three years, with the possibility of a six-month extension after that period. The scholarship includes additional benefits including relocation expense reimbursement and an additional sum to cover costs associated with the production of the final PhD thesis. For more information on the benefits included in an ANU PhD scholarship, please see the example Conditions of Award. Successful applicants will also receive a full tuition fee waiver.

PhD students in the College work very closely with an academic supervisor and a panel of advisers with expertise in their chosen field of research. They also have the opportunity to access a broad range of specialist courses, attend seminars, conferences and summer schools, and to contribute to various undergraduate teaching activities. To support these activities, all PhD students in the College have access to $6000 AUD of professional development funding for the duration of their candidature.

Potential applicants should start by making contact with a prospective supervisor and discussing their research topic. They should then review the instructions on the ANU application procedure, and then use ANU Apply Online to submit their application. When specifying the scholarship, applicants should select ‘ANU PhD – Other’.

The deadline for complete applications to be submitted is April 20, 2018.
