Academic scholarships by course

Master of Humanitarianism and Development

Prospective students for the Master of Humanitarianism and Development may be eligible for one of Deakin University’s undergraduate or postgraduate by coursework scholarships. A range of academic merit and access and equity scholarships are offered.

The Centre aims to improve equity of access to higher education in humanitarian leadership and encourages applications for scholarships by prospective students from developing nations.

More information about Deakin University scholarships, including application details, is available at the Deakin website.

Higher Degree Research proposals

The Centre will consider Higher Degree Research (HDR) project proposals from suitably qualified academics, practitioners, and higher-degree research students with a keen interest in contributing to the Centre’s leading research in the humanitarian sector.

Proposals should relate to the CHL’s thematic research area of humanitarian leadership. This is understood in a broad sense incorporating people, organisations and systems.

Research proposals that focus on leading more effectively through improving systems, human factors or technology are particularly encouraged, as are those with a focus on improving humanitarian response in the Asia-Pacific region.

Applications are open to individuals who meet Deakin University’s HDR entry requirements and who are eligible to study in Australia or apply for a student visa.

More information regarding eligibility to study at Deakin University as a higher degree research student is available at the Deakin website.

Support the Humanitarian Leaders Scholarship fund

By supporting Deakin University’s Humanitarian Leaders Scholarship fund, you can help ensure that well-prepared humanitarian leaders will be on the ground to provide timely and life-saving responses when, and where, a crisis strikes.

Your gift today has an impact far beyond directly assisting the student who receives the proceeds of the scholarship for the Diplôme d’Études Supérieures en Leadership Humanitaire, and will ultimately benefit millions of lives around the world for years to come.

Together, we can harness the power of education to multiply the impact from the classroom to the disaster zone.
