  • Eligibility & selection criteria
    Eligibility

    To be eligible for this scholarship, you need to:

    • be under 30 years of age on the specified closing date
    • have completed a teaching degree OR have completed a Masters degree in education at the University of Melbourne
    • demonstrate an aptitude in teaching and an ability to research education (note: this may be demonstrated through strong performances in Professional Practice subjects completed as a part of your teaching qualification)
    • be keen to make an exciting career move, and
    • would like to pursue research or teaching interests at an overseas institution or setting.

    Selection criteria

    To assess your potential as a researcher or teacher, the selection panel needs to evaluate your teaching and/or research potential.  Some applicants will have a strong background in teaching, and others in research.  Equal weighting will be given to each.  If you have strengths in both areas, each of these will be taken into account.

    The following criteria will apply:

    If you are applying for this Scholarship via the research route

    • You will be assessed according to academic marks and grades received in your most recent University qualifications.  You would need to have an average of H1 / 80%.
    • Ideally, you will also have some teaching experience.

    If you are applying for this Scholarship via the teaching route

    • An average of at least H1 or 80% would be preferred, but this minimum grade/mark may be waived for those who show potential as an outstanding teacher.  The panel needs to be confident that the applicant would be capable of writing a high quality report (see ‘The Project’ below).
    • Ideally, you will be able to demonstrate an ability to research the field of education.

    It is a condition of the scholarship that you are expected to return to Australia within three years of the termination of the scholarship and hold a position in the field of education for a minimum of two years.

    If you do not undertake formal study at a university overseas, you will write and present an 8,000 to 10,000 word report to MGSE.

  • Application process

    The following guidelines outline what you need to do to make an application for this Scholarship.

    1.EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

    • Check that you meet the Criteria
    • Write an Expression of Interest of 500 words that outlines the kind of project you would like to do.  To get an idea of what you might like to do, read the section on Project below.
    • Email this to [email protected] . Expressions of Interest (EOI) must be received by midnight (AEST) 15 March 2018.

    2.APPLICATION

    • If you are asked to submit an application, you will be put in touch with the MGSE’s Assistant Dean (Research Training) to discuss what your Project might look like.  This will help you to prepare an application – a document that that outlines the Project (read the section on Project below) and a Budget.
    • You will need to submit your application by the nominated date as directed by MGSE.

    After you submit your application, you may be contacted by the Selection Officer to attend an interview or to provide the Selection Committee with extra information.

    THE PROJECT

  • you will need to think carefully about what your project will be. At the Expression of Interest stage you could think about what your main researchable idea is, and which overseas universities or systems of education you could plan to visit to develop your idea.
  • One possibility is to align your idea with the research strengths and directions of the MGSE.  This will give you an opportunity to tap into the extensive overseas networks we have built up.  Find out about these areas of research:
    https://www.findanexpert.unimelb.edu.au/
  • If you are invited to submit an Application, you will have the opportunity to discuss the topic you would like to research with the Assistant Dean (Research Training) who will link you with a mentor with expertise on this topic.  The mentor will help you to frame your project.
  • You will then devise a plan of visits/studies, and a (broadly) costed itinerary for the time you expect to be overseas.
  • THE BUDGET

    The Scholarship will fund the major expenditure of your trip.  It will cover accommodation, tuition fees, and a stipend to cover day-to-day incidentals.

    Elaborate the following in your budget:

    • Travel costs
      – itemised to show the cost of each individual leg (economy-class)
    • Accommodation costs
      – Cost per night in each place
      – Number of nights you are staying in each place
      – hotels that have no more than a 3-star rating.  (The only exception is if a female applicant is travelling to a location where her personal safety might be compromised.  In this case, you will need to make a special case for staying in other accommodation)
    • Tuition costs – if applicable
    • Dates for when accommodation and travel information were collected.
      – The selection panel understands that prices can change, especially travel costs.  If you are awarded the scholarship you can update this information for the selection panel, with reference to the firm bookings you have made.

    The stipend can only be paid for the period that that you would be overseas.

  • When will I know the outcome?

    Within two weeks of submitting an Expression of Interest you will receive a response indicating whether you have been invited to submit an application.
