The University of Melbourne has launched a new scholarship programme for aspiring PhD students from India. Named as the Melbourne-India Postgraduate Programme, it is a multimillion-dollar scholarship programme that will provide 16 PhD students from India with international academic supervision and support in Melbourne.

The Melbourne-India Postgraduate Programme

The Melbourne-India Postgraduate Programme (MIPP) will link the University of Melbourne with three of the leading research institutes in India:

  • The Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore (IISc)
  • The Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK)
  • The Institute of Technology Madras (IITM)

A joint initiative of the four institutions, the University Of Melbourne PhD scholarship is a three million AUD programme that will provide 16 PhD scholarships and associated support for research exchanges over the next three years. The programme will address shared global challenges in areas of environmental, societal and technological need. The Melbourne-India Postgraduate Programme will also provide students the opportunity to contribute to the development of education, cultural and industry links between both countries.

The Melbourne-India Postgraduate Programme will officially commence in 2014 and will be open to PhD students enrolled at the University Of Melbourne, to be co-supervised by staff at IITK, IITM or IISC.  Alternatively, students enrolled in one of the three Indian institutions will have access to co-supervision with Melbourne academics.
