Institutions are invited to submit up to two outstanding students for consideration for a new PhD scholarship to commence early in 2025. Applicants must be Victorian residents and able to commence their PhD in early 2025 for completion by December 2027.

Applications must be coordinated through the research office of each institution. The Research Office will need to keep track of the progress of each PhD student and advise the Foundation of any delays before submitting invoices for payment.

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 will 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 a hard copy with the applicant’s
name and institution 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.

The closing date for applications is 5.00 pm Thursday 8 August 2024. Institutions re required to email their nominations and applications to commedge@tpg.com.au and to also send one hard copy to:

Julienne Lewis
29/120 Cambridge Street
Collingwood VIC 3066

Please email any enquiries to commedge@tpg.com.au.

The research office will need to provide an annual report of the scholarship holders 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. Failure to do so may result in the forfeiting of the scholarship.

This is a great opportunity for a dedicated student and I hope you will give it
serious consideration.
