The Frank Perry Travelling Scholarship in Engineering - open to MPhil/PhD in Engineering

The Frank Perry Travelling Scholarship in Engineering has been established to support higher degree by research students who present study-related research at peer-reviewed conferences, interstate or overseas. 

This scholarship was established in 1974 as a result of a gift to the University from the Trustees of the Frank and Hilda Perry Trust. Sir Frank Tennyson Perry (1887-1965) had a long history with the University, and was a member of the Council of the University from 1949-1962.

A number of awards are available annually to postgraduate students of outstanding merit in the field of engineering.

The total amount available for the award is estimated at $45,000 per year.

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