Medical and Biomedical Postgraduate Scholarships

In 2015 Foundation will offer a scholarship for funding from January 2016. The purpose of the Foundation Scholarships scheme is to support outstanding medical, nursing, allied health and biomedical graduates early in their career so that they can enhance their research skills, and conduct medical research at St George & Sutherland Hospitals. It is anticipated that Postgraduate Scholars supported by the Foundation, will develop the capacity for original independent research. It is intended that the Foundation Scholars will attain a higher degree by research (MD, PhD, Masters by Research, or equivalent) in this process.

Biomedical Postgraduate Research Scholarship – The purpose of the Biomedical Postgraduate Research Scholarships is to support non-medical graduates of outstanding ability to gain full-time biomedical research experience while enrolled for a higher degree. All candidates must enrol for a higher degree requiring full-time research such as MD, PhD, Masters by Research, or equivalent.
