Food Agility Masters and PHD Scholarships at 8 Australian Universities

Food Agility Masters and PHD Scholarships at 8 Australian Universities is always open as it is done in an ongoing basis. Food Agility’s Higher Degree by Research (HDR) Program is training the next generation of agrifood scientists, technologists, and industry innovators. It includes Doctorate and Masters by Research students, with full and top-up scholarships available for both domestic and international students.


Food Agility full and top-up scholarships of up to 3 years maximum duration are available to higher degree research (HDR) students who participate in Food Agility Research Programs. In cases where a proposed project area is of significant strategic value to Food Agility, but no current Food Agility activity exists, a HDR “Strategic Scholarship” project may be awarded and conducted independently.

Scholarship recipients must enrol in a Food Agility partner (host) university and the supervision team will normally comprise the Principal Supervisor (host university); where practicable, an academic co-supervisor from another Food Agility partner university; and a co-supervisor from a relevant Food Agility “end-user” partner. Food Agility can assist in connecting with these end-user partners if the applicant has not already gained their participation.

The applicant’s area of research is usually defined by the objectives of an “Activator” research project or a “Strategic” project. In the event that an Activator research project is completed or significantly varied before the completion of the scholarship, the scholarship (and candidature) will be maintained to completion at the host university, with the supervision team.
