If a scholarship is open for application, before applying, check that you are eligible, then carefully read the information on how to apply.
What can a scholarship do?
PhD candidate (BioSciences)
Recipient of a Dame Margaret Blackwood Soroptimist Scholarship
"I am incredibly grateful for support over two years during my PhD. With a young child, travelling for research can be financially and logistically difficult. The scholarship has significantly relieved this pressure, allowing me to visit and work with interstate collaborators, as well as to attend conferences."
Master of Science (Physics)
Recipient of a Jean E Laby Bursary
"Receiving the bursary has definitely changed how I see my future from here. In knowing that there are people out there willing to give a helping hand, I want to keep pushing on with my studies, trying to break through the barriers that I’ve had in the hope that one day I will be able to give back to society through some breakthrough or contribution to the field."
