Funding for PhD scholarships is limited to three and a half years from the date of commencement. For applicants that have already commenced their studies at the time of their application, the available funding will be calculated pro-rata, based on the period of study that has yet to be completed.
Scholarship funds are intended to fund the student stipend. Use of the funds for any other study-related purpose (for example, to support fieldwork) is at the sole discretion of the Centre.
Scholarship holders will also be able to:
- apply for additional funding support to attend a relevant conference, and to participate in events and activities run by the Centre.
- participate in professional development activities offered by the Centre, which may include writing skills, media and public speaking training, poster design, and other skills.
- apply for short-term placements in Centre partner organisations.
- apply for a Natural Hazards Early Career Researcher Development or Industry Fellowship through the Centre, in the final stages of their study.
