Australian residents

In 2008 and 2009, a number of mobility scholarships are available to assist Australian students to travel between institutions for core and partnership courses. Mobility scholarships of $3500 per year will be available to most Australian students in 2008 and 2009, depending on their enrolment status and the amount of travel planned, to a total of $7000 over the course of the program. These mobility scholarships are provided by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, and will be allocated competitively by each institution and the national program.

On top of the mobility scholarships, stipends of up to $5000 will be allocated annually on a competitive basis as they become available through contributions from forest sector sponsors and individual donors.

International students

The National Forestry Masters Program encourages the participation of international students, but international fees apply, and scholarship funding opportunities differ from those for Australian students.

IDP Australia is the principal information source for scholarships available to international students for study in Australia. For students from some countries, principally those in Asia-Pacific, Australian Government scholarships may be available. Other funding sources may include multilateral development banks, development agencies, and foundations – for most of these, you will need to apply through local or regional offices. International students are encouraged to contact individual course coordinators for fee and scholarship information.
