PhD Students

program theme

An annual Call for PhD and Master level scholars is made each September. Applicants are selected both on the basis of their academic record and the merit of the proposed research. Four PhD scholars or equivalent are usually funded, although on occasions a larger number have been supported.

The PhD stipend is $27,000 p.a. with an additional $8,000 p.a. allowed for operating costs.

The scholarships, as a general rule, will be managed as part of the Innovation program but scholars will be encouraged to become involved in program activities relevant to their topic.

A key annual event will be the scholars workshop. This is an opportunity for scholars to meet and interact amongst themselves and some LWA staff. Reports on projects are interspersed with topical talks and career development discussions.  A list of our PhD Projects can be found at: PhD Projects.
