International Centre for Muslim and Non-Muslim Understanding

PhD scholarships

UniSA's International Centre for Muslim and Non-Muslim Understanding encourages scholarship that contributes to the development of Critical Muslim Studies as a distinct approach combining insights from post-orientalism, post-colonialism and post-structuralism. Muslim Studies is aimed at re-framing the Muslim question that haunts the contemporary world.

PhD scholarships are available for students wishing to undertake research within the field of Critical Muslim studies, working with a diverse and dynamic team of international and interdisciplinary scholars.


The scholarships are valued at AU$30,000 tax free per annum.

Research information

Applicants working broadly within the humanities and social sciences can apply. However, applicants' research topics should reflect the Centre's core interest in developing Critical Muslim Studies.


Applicants will have at least an undergraduate degree in an associated discipline with an outstanding academic record.  

The Centre strongly encourages applications from individuals of minority groups.

The scholarships are available to Australian and New Zealand citizens and permanent residents of Australia and international applicants.
