The Grattan Scholars

Established by the School of Social Sciences and Philosophy in 2012 to serve as a catalyst for attracting and inspiring the best and brightest postgraduate students from around the world, The Grattan Scholars programme has succeeded beyond all expectations.

The Grattan Scholars programme supports exceptional PhD students who have the potential to become future academic leaders and influential voices for social and economic development. Grattan Scholars are chosen not only for their academic achievements, but also for their commitment to teaching and ambition to understand and improve society through their research and education.  Grattan Scholars also play a vital role in delivering high-quality and engaging teaching enriching the learning experience of our undergraduate students.
