The University of Tasmania has over 100 Elite Research Scholarships for PhD candidates in areas we excel in: the health and medical sciences, natural, physical and applied sciences, as well as business and management, regional development, education and the humanities.
Our Elite Research Scholarships are valued at $30k per annum tax-free, and are available for three years, with a possible six-month extension.
We also support our PhD candidates with a suite of practical resources throughout their Higher Degrees by Research including laptops, opportunities for performance-based scholarship top ups, cloud data storage, a conference support fund, generic skilling and supportive candidature management which help each candidate navigate their own research path.
If you have an outstanding academic record and a passion for research we probably have an Elite Research Scholarship for you.
Promising candidates within Australia and New Zealand are eligible for a return airfare to visit UTAS and their School of interest to help them decide. And if chosen, generous relocation support is available.
Applications remain open throughout 2011.
Eligibility The Elite Research Scholarship is restricted to exceptional applicants whose research for their PhD will occur in a well-defined and managed (supervised) project (see Official Website.).
Elite Research Scholarships are open to both international and domestic applicants.
Applicants must have:
a minimum of first class honours (H1) degree or equivalent, or
a masters by coursework degree may be viewed as equivalent if the overall results are at distinction average and it contains a significant research project with a grade of H1 or equivalent, or
relevant and substantial experience in an appropriate sector may be viewed as equivalent, providing the applicant can demonstrate a level of experience commensurate with the skills required for research.
