JCU Graduate Research Education

Undertaking a research degree (Master of Philosophy and PhD) is a unique experience. It is creative, challenging, emotionally and intellectually demanding, and often-times immensely rewarding. However, research takes time and can be costly. By supporting JCU Graduate Research Education you are supporting the next wave of experts addressing some of the critical challenges facing the tropics.

JCU postgraduate research provides opportunities for students to sharpen their skills, make discoveries and contribute knowledge to their field. These early career researchers often go on to become change-makers in their chosen fields.

Research scholarships are key to JCU's ability to attract and support the most talented and diverse graduate students and prepare them to be the next generation of leaders.
