Scholarships are awarded to successful applicants through a merit-based process that considers academic achievement and relevant research related experience that includes the publication of research outputs.
Applications for scholarship rounds must be submitted by the advertised deadlines.
When you apply for a scholarship you will automatically be considered for all available scholarships within the round.
