The Australia India Institute (Aii) manages and administers the Victoria India Doctoral Scholarship (VIDS). The VIDS supports talented scholars from India to complete leading research that has the capacity to benefit communities in India and Victoria. To date, 29 scholarships have been awarded. These awards are supported by the Victorian Government.

Each successful scholar receives a scholarship of AUD$90,000 over the duration of their doctoral study, plus a full tuition waiver by their host Victorian university.

The Aii will no longer accept applications for the VIDS. Please refer to the Study Melbourne website for other scholarship programs available to international students in Victoria.
