ECMS HDR Travelling Scholarship - open to MPhil/PhD in ECMS

The ECMS Higher Degree by Research (HDR) Travelling Scholarship was established in 2019 by the Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences (ECMS) to support higher degree by research students who present study-related research at peer-reviewed conferences, interstate or overseas.  

Applications are open to all HDR candidates in ECMS, but priority of awards will be given to applicants in computer science and mathematical sciences due to limited scholarship funding available in computer science and mathematical sciences currently.

A number of awards are available annually. The total amount available for the award is estimated at $25,000 per year.

Scholarship recipients with caring responsibilities may apply for support from the ECMS Dependant Travel Fund
