View Full Version : PhD Scholarship Opportunity

02-13-2011, 08:30 AM
Dear all,

I am posting the scholarship opportunity below on behalf of the Centre for Inland Health (CIH), Charles Sturt University (CSU) Australia... As a key researcher in the Centre for Inland Health, I am personally interested in supervising/co-supervising students interested in examining the contribution of central mechanisms to cancer-related fatigue and/or other chronic fatigue conditions. Please note this is my personal area of research interest (as stated in list of potential higher degree research supervisors from the CIH). Students interested in researching in other relevant areas are also strongly encouraged to consider this opportunity and view the list of key researchers, their areas of expertise, and contact potential supervisors prior to submitting an application.


**PhD Scholarship Opportunity**

The Centre for Inland Health (CIH), Charles Sturt University (CSU) Australia, is offering one further full-time research higher degree (PhD) scholarship for 2011. This scholarship is open to students intending to take up higher degree research related to inland health and principally supervised by a key researcher of the Centre for Inland Health.

An application form is available at: http://www.csu.edu.au/research/inland-health/research/scholarships.htm

Also available at this site is a list of potential higher degree research supervisors from the Centre for Inland Health at CSU, and the research areas in which they would be happy to consider providing supervision. You should discuss your proposed research with one of these potential supervisors and ensure a supervisor is available for your proposed research, prior to submitting a scholarship application.

The CIH research higher degree scholarships are CSU scholarships offered under similar rules as those that apply to Australian Postgraduate Awards (APA) and, except for the stipulations regarding area of research (which must be related to inland health) and principal supervisor (who must be a key researcher of the Centre for Inland Health), the conditions and benefits of the scholarships are similar to those associated with CSU-administered APA (see: http://www.csu.edu.au/research/higher_degrees/scholarships).

Applications for this CIH scholarship must be received by 10th February, 2011.

The application assessment process used for this scholarship will be similar to that used for CSU-administered APA scholarships. However, the extent to which the proposed research relates to inland health will be an additional assessment consideration.

Applicants are encouraged to apply for any other available scholarships for which they might be eligible (including CSU-administered APA’s), in addition to this CIH scholarship, in order to maximise their chances of securing a scholarship to support their proposed program of research.
