John Monash Support Program

Sir John Monash Scholarships - Applications open

The Sir John Monash Foundation was established in 2001 with an initial contribution from the Australian Federal Government together with further contributions from corporate and private sponsors and donors.

Its purpose is to raise funds for, and to administer, Australia’s own postgraduate scholarships- the John Monash Scholarships- to foster leadership, expertise and international networks, as well as build Australia’s capabilities for the future.

The John Monash Scholarships are postgraduate scholarships awarded to outstanding Australians with leadership potential who wish to study overseas. The John Monash Scholarships are amongst the most important postgraduate scholarships currently available in Australia.

UON is extremely proud of its partnership with the Commission, which closely aligns with NeW Futures and the University’s research and innovation goals of facilitating collaborations on a regional, national and global scale.
