Sustainability Research Awards | Round two opens

25 September 2018

It is time to apply for round two of the the Faculty of Science's 2018 Student Sustainability Research Awards.

Each year the Faculty's Sustainability Network offers ten awards of up to $2000 each to postgraduate students undertaking projects relating to sustainability at the University, or a broader sustainability issue.

The awards are available to support a student's living costs. Up to $2,000 is awarded for a full year project within a formal postgraduate qualification, such as an honours dissertation or a masters project. For shorter projects, up to $500 is awarded.

Applications are welcomed from postgraduate students who are either enrolled in the Faculty of Science or whose primary discipline is administered through the Faculty of Science.

Supervisors with a sustainability project can identify a suitable student and encourage them to apply.

Applications for small projects that are not a formal part of the student’s degree or diploma programme will be considered.

Preference will be given to non-doctoral students and those without an existing stipend.

Applications for round two open on 1 October and close on 5 November 2018.
