Scholarships for undergraduate and postgraduate students
HOT NORTH scholarships were set up for undergraduate and postgraduate students to undertake a research project in one of the following fields of research:
Skin Health; Respiratory Health; Antimicrobial Resistance; Chronic Diseases; Vector Borne and Emerging Diseases.
Scholarships were open to domestic students (Australian citizens and Permanent Residents) across Australia who had been accepted into an undergraduate or postgraduate course (or equivalent) at Charles Darwin University, James Cook University, University of Western Australia, University of Sydney, University of Melbourne, Monash University and university partners of the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute and the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute.
HOT NORTH selected applicants using a competitive merit-based process.
The scholarships were offered for one year (subject to satisfying course academic requirements) and included a stipend of up to $10,000 (or pro rata). Scholarship stipends were administered by the scholarship holders’ organisation.
The Scholarship Panel based their decisions on the following guidelines and criteria:
a) Applicants ranked on academic merit.
b) Careful consideration was given to grade point average.
c) Applicants must have had a Chief Investigator or Associate Investigator in one of the HOT NORTH themes of Skin Health; Respiratory Health; Antimicrobial Resistance; Chronic Diseases; Vector Borne and Emerging Infectious Diseases as a supervisor (see below for list of investigators).
d) Publications and relevant work experience were considered where they had direct influence on the applicant’s academic or research capacity.
