The Foundation will not be funding a new PhD SCHOLARSHIP in 2022. Our funding is tight given the impact of the pandemic and we have used our resources to fund nine new research grants instead. We hope that we will be able to offer a PhD scholarship in 2023 so please watch this space.
If we do institutions will be invited to submit up to two outstanding students for consideration for a PhD scholarship in 2023. This scholarship is intended to assist first-class honours students who have not received an Australian Postgraduate Award or other substantial scholarship. Applicants must have completed tertiary studies that are at least equivalent to a 4-year honours degree at an Australian university with a minimum result of first class honours. Also applicants must have applied for, or be currently enrolled in, a graduate research degree.
Applications from H1 students must include the following:
· 100-200 word summary of their PhD proposal
· Copy of academic transcript and CV
· Letter of support from supervisor
The scholarship is likely to cover two thirds of a full three-year scholarship and students
will be required to seek the additional third from their department or other
sources. Nominations must be received as hard copies with the applicant’s
name clearly marked on the cover page and also in a single electronic file with the applicant’s name and institution clearly in the subject line
to assist with administration.
Please refer to this website for the closing date late in 2023. Institutions will be required to email their nominations and applications to firstname.lastname@example.org and to also send one hard copy to:
29/120 Cambridge Street
Collingwood VIC 3066
Please email any enquiries to email@example.com.
The successful applicant will need to provide an annual report of their progress as
well as a final report using our proforma on completion. They will also need to
inform the Foundation of any changes to their original project or reasons for any
delays as soon as they become evident.
This is a great opportunity for a dedicated student and I hope you will give it
serious consideration when it is offered in the future.
