Scholarships and funding
Southern Cross Business School scholarships
The aim of these scholarships is to increase the number of high-calibre PhD and MPhil research students in the SCBS. The scholarships are competitive and will be advertised to attract the very best domestic and international higher degree research students to study full-time at one of the main campuses of the School. Awards are made to support the students maintenance costs and do not cover the tuition fees that may apply. Higher degree research students who are required to pay fees, e.g. International students, can apply for a fee-waiver to the Deputy Head (Research) for consideration by SCU's Higher Degree Research Committee (Note that, the award of a SCBS scholarship does not entitle the student to a fee-waiver which is normally only awarded to the very top students).
For full details of SCBS scholarships, go to Research policy and procedures.
Southern Cross Business School scholarships (top-ups) and fee waivers
Scholarship (stipend) top-ups will cover funding between the current level of an Australian Postgraduate Award $23,728 and competitive top scholarship rates $30,000 (Note: rates shown are current for 2012 and are revised annually). The duration of the scholarships are three years for a PhD and two years for an MPhil.
Fee waivers cover tuition fees only. Applicants who are offered a fee waiver may also apply for a SCBS scholarship to cover living expenses. An offer of fee waiver does not guarantee an offer of a scholarship nor does the offer of a scholarship guarantee a fee waiver.
