The School can provide up to $4000 towards research costs for a PhD and $2000 for a Master's.
Eligibility and application guidelines
This is not an automatic entitlement and applications must demonstrate a clear research benefit.
- All applications must be on the current application form (below) and have written support from the supervisor and discipline chair.
- All applications must have a copy of the applicant’s original research proposal, and must clearly demonstrate how the funding is essential to the research. Supervisors must confirm the essential nature of the research.
- Research proposals for higher degree ask for an estimation of costs: it is expected that requests for funds under the School scheme will have been anticipated and approved at the research proposal stage.
- Funds will only be provided after a student has used all other University funds (such as the University Graduate Research Candidate Travel Award) for which he or she is eligible.
- Funds will be available for, but not limited to, archival research, field research and other research activities. Types of funding likely to be supported:
- specific research task software
- specific skill training
- conference registration.
- Types of requests unlikely to be supported:
- purchase of personal computers
- clerical and editing services.
- Retrospective requests will not be supported.
- Part-time postgraduate students may apply.
- Funding for jointly enrolled candidates will be pro-rata based on the percentage supervised in the School.
Guidelines for postgraduate research travel funding
A conference grant of $740 can be provided to PhD and Master's research students. Master's students who upgrade to a PhD will not be eligible for a second grant.
