Global Challenges PhD Scholarship


Collaborating to tackle a global problem




The Global Challenges PhD Scholarship is a gold standard PhD training program that brings together bright minds to tackle global challenges. Our 2023 cohort will tackle Chronic Disease and Drug Discovery.

The Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB) is a national hub for research training, linking world experts in the field, cutting-edge facilities, and an innovative research and job-ready training program for our Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students.

We invite you to become part of a cohort of PhD students and make your own contribution to our collaborative vision to find the solutions to key global challenges through high-quality multidisciplinary research.

"Definitely apply for it, there's nothing to lose... the opportunities that it provides are like none of the other scholarships that are available that I've seen in Australia. It's a great opportunity that's definitely worth committing to." - Max Harding | Global Challenges PhD Scholar (2021)
