Funding Opportunities

Established in 2012, the Monash Warwick Alliance is a partnership that combines expertise and resources of two leading universities and brings both universities to the forefront of excellence and innovation in education and research.

During the first decade of collaboration, the Alliance has:

  • supported over 100 collaborative projects,
  • enabled over 1000 high impact co-authored articles,
  • generated significant external funding for vital research to both universities,
  • created a range of unique international learning experiences that benefit over 1000 students from Monash, Warwick and our partner universities annually.

After a period of reduced activity due to the global pandemic, we are delighted to announce reactivation of collaborative opportunities for our researchers, educators, professional staff and students.

Research Funding

The Alliance Co-Fund is designed to enhance the quality and competitiveness of research proposals to external funders by leveraging the existing links and complementary expertise between Monash and Warwick.

The Alliance Activation Fund is designed to flexibly support Monash and Warwick researchers to establish new links and advance existing collaborations. The Fund targets activities that respond to a challenge or external demand and utilise our complementary strengths to deliver research excellence and impact.

The Alliance Joint PhD is part of our commitment to developing a successor generation of internationally experienced young researchers. It is aimed at supporting academic collaborations by attracting outstanding, highly-mobile PhD candidates who can bring additional capacity to support joint research teams. Up to 3 full scholarships (fees, maintenance and travel allowance) are awarded annually to the most outstanding PhD applicants.

The Scheme is currently under review and anticipated to launch during 2022/23 academic year.

Student Funding

The PhD Travel Grant is a fantastic opportunity to connect with academics and fellow research students across the globe.
