The UNSW Scientia PhD Scholarship Scheme

The UNSW Scientia PhD Scholarship Scheme aims to attract the best and brightest people into strategic research areas and provide them with an enhanced culture of research excellence, mentoring, career development, leadership and community. The Scheme provides 4 years of funding for the candidate to complete a PhD at UNSW. The awards will be made across all Faculties in areas of identified research strengths and the scheme will ensure that candidates reflect the disciplinary, gender and cultural diversity of UNSW.  In contrast to our other prestigious UNSW scholarship schemes, the UNSW Scientia scheme is targeted and applicants must apply to a specific research area with an identified supervisory team.
