University of Melbourne launches Melbourne India Postgraduate Programme

The Melbourne India Postgraduate Programme will link the University of Melbourne with the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, the Institute of Technology Kanpur and the Institute of Technology Madras. It is a $3 million (AUD) programme which will provide 16 PhD scholarships and associated support for research exchanges over the next three years. The new University of Melbourne PhD Scholarship Programme in India will address shared global challenges in areas of environmental, societal and technological need. The initiative will also foster links between India and Australia in the fields of development of education, culture and industry.

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 Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, Institute of Technology Kanpur or Institute of Technology Madras. On the other hand, students enrolled in one of these three Indian institutions will have access to co-supervision with Melbourne academics. The University of Melbourne PhD Scholarship Programme in India will include projects that may also involve collaboration with industry, government and non-government organisations.
