    Default any PhD moms here ?

    I am about to start my PHD study from next feb, just wondering about the scholarship and centrelink payment.
    After getting a scholarship, to which degree would it affect our centrelink payment? I am currently on parental payment, which payment category would i fall into after starting phd?
    What about the childcare benefit ? how much would i be entitled to ? any other assistance for childcare?

    thank you very much!~

    Hi there, what was the response to your question on PhD and centrelink? I'm looking to start my PhD in Jan 2014, and if scholarships don't punt as income it may be worth me approaching centrelink. If not I'd rather avoid the hassle of the queue!
    Thanks

    Njbula, my PhD scholarship is not considered taxable income, so I assume it wouldn't affect centrelink payments?

    Hi, I am 1 year into my PhD and on an APA scholarship. It doesn't affect any payments as it is classed as non taxable income. If anything I get more money back from tax and child care rebates etc as my taxable income on scholarship is much lower.

    Subbing because I'm thinking about doing a PhD in 2015 (after I finish my current Masters) & hoping I'll also be a mum before then

    What's your PhD in BT?

    I don't even know if I'm pregnant, just late and have symptoms but too freaked out to test need to calm down. What are you studying? How hard is it? How expensive is child care? How does your apa affect what your entitled too? What are you entitled to studying

    Sorry for all my questions
