MGA Graduate Student Group Grant Scheme

Did you know you are one of 28,000 graduate students across four campuses and numerous off-campus sites at Monash University?

Our aim is to involve each and every one of you in our services and activities. Sometimes that means we can help you to help yourselves with the MGA’s Graduate Student Group Grant Scheme.

Just say you have a great idea that will benefit student peers in your faculty or department. For example:

  • There’s an expert speaker you’d love to invite to a student-run seminar
  • You’d love to provide catering for a two-day student-led research conference 
  • Funds towards forming a special interest group in your department or a social gathering for your cohort.

Applications are now open for 2020 Group funding and 2020 Conference and Seminar Organiser Funding. Check out our website for further details and application forms.


For any guidance on how to start up a group or for any assistance in running your groups, social events, conferences or seminars, please contact our groups grants coordinator Vicki Stevenson.

Or find an existing group that you might be able to join.

The MGA would like to say thank you to all of our group, conference and seminar organisers for all their fantastic efforts in organising events for their cohort in 2019.

And a big welcome to all of our new groups including; FMNHS education HDR Student Group. MYMI, NPsych, PHDRS, Centre for Health Economics PhD Students, MBA, Masters of Project Management.
