How to apply
Applications for our annual scholarship round are now open for students starting in 2020.
Apply for a research degree and a scholarship any time between now and 30 September 2019.
You must register your interest for a scholarship when you apply for your course by completing the 'Scholarship application' section of the research degree application form. Indicate on your application that you want to be considered for a scholarship as part of our annual scholarship round.
You'll be considered for all scholarships you're eligible for.
If you have already applied for admission and want to be considered in the annual scholarship round, register your interest by contacting the Research Students Centre.
Your proposal should clearly outline the project’s connection between creative practice-led research and scientific inquiry. The project proposal should summarise your current track record as a creative practitioner and indicate how biomedical science is an integral part of the study.
You will, in broad terms, consider how creative practice and biotechnology can form an innovative relationship. There are many possibilities, but a proposal might consider how lab-generated imaging inspires creative responses.
The selected candidate will demonstrate a strong potential for producing original, high-impact research.
Contact Professor Louis Philippe Demers for further details.
What happens next?
We'll assess applications and make offers in mid-November. If your scholarship application is successful, you'll need to accept the offer by the response date provided in your offer. We expect you to begin your research degree early in the following year.
Eligibility for admission to a PhD is determined by the Research Students Centre. Scholarships applications will be assessed by the faculty you’re applying to study with.
Your scholarship will end when you submit your thesis, or at the end of the award's tenure, whichever comes first.
