History or background of award

The scholarship will provide a stipend of $2,000 per month for up to three months less any outstanding tuition fees. Stipend payments will only be released to a candidate following a monthly confirmation from the candidate’s primary supervisor (or secondary supervisor or Head of School) that the candidate is progressing as per the timeline submitted with the application. A reimbursement of thesis binding costs of up to $100 will be paid to the candidate on evidence of an original receipt.

Purpose of award

The purpose of this scholarship is to enable doctoral candidates to fully concentrate on completing their thesis. Applicants and their supervisors must carefully consider the amount of time required to completion as the scholarship is only available for the final three months before submission of the thesis for examination. Full-time or half-time candidates may apply, but candidates who are currently registered half-time will be required to change their registration to full-time.
