Postgraduate by Coursework and Honours

We provide scholarships and awards to students enrolled in an Honours program or Master by coursework.

Scholarships generally have selection criteria, which must be met, and can provide financial support to assist you with education and living expenses.

Higher Degree by Research

At ECU, we are committed to undertaking high quality research and offer a number of scholarships to students undertaking a Doctoral or Master by research degree.

Research scholarships support Australian and New Zealand citizens and Australian permanent residents.

The Research Training Scheme provides tuition fee funding for students in selected research courses. Whilst you remain eligible for this scheme, you will not be required to pay for your tuition fees up-front, nor will you accrue a tuition fee debt for the duration of the course.

To be eligible you must be:

  • an Australian Citizen;
  • an Australian Permanent Resident; or
  • a New Zealand Citizen

Postgraduate Commonwealth Government Supported Courses

These courses are subsidised by the Australian Government. The Government contributes towards your tuition fees and you are responsible for the remaining tuition fees called your 'student contribution'. The rate of tuition fees changes annually for these courses.
