Ramsay Postgraduate Scholarships

Open annually to Australian citizens to pursue graduate study abroad.

The Ramsay Postgraduate Scholarships were established through the generosity of the founder of the Ramsay Centre, Mr Paul Ramsay. The first students will commence graduate study in 2021.

Scholarships are open annually to Australian citizens to pursue graduate study abroad. The aim of the scholarships is to enable coursework and/or research to be undertaken at the world’s best universities and colleges for up to two years (and in select cases up to three years). Levels of support for tuition and living costs are fully competitive with such prestigious awards as the General Sir John Monash, Commonwealth, Rhodes and Fulbright Scholarships.

Scholarships are valued at up to AUS$85,000 p.a. with smaller scholarships available for study at St John’s College, Annapolis.

  • The majority of scholarships will be awarded to students to pursue graduate study at the world’s best universities abroad, normally for up to 2 years (with the possibility in the case of some PhD candidates of extension to a third year). Scholarships cover tuition fees and living expenses. Value: up to AUS$85,000 p.a.
  • A select number of scholarships may be awarded to students to pursue the Master of Arts in the Liberal Arts focussing on the great books of the Western canon at St John’s College, Annapolis. Ramsay Scholars attending St John’s College will have opportunities for internships in Washington DC in their second year. For admission to St John’s College, Annapolis, applicants will need a high-quality undergraduate degree in any field. These scholarships are valued at AUS$60,000 p.a. (max duration: 2 years) and cover tuition fees and living expenses. Find out more about the Master of Liberal Arts
  • In exceptional cases, the Ramsay Centre reserves the right to offer full or partial scholarships to select students who have already commenced postgraduate study abroad, resources permitting.

The scholarships are not awarded for undergraduate study, medical research, post-doctoral research, or any other research appointment. They are not ordinarily available for part-time study or for Executive Education programs.

The number of scholarships awarded is at the discretion of the selection panel. 20-25 may be awarded in a given year.
