The Business School is committed to providing our research students with a supportive and well resourced environment in which to undertake their research. One of our commitments is to provide financial support. Currently, there are three research funding schemes in place to support PhD students in the different stages of their research candidature: the Postgraduate Research Support Scheme (PRSS), the PhD Fieldwork Funding Scheme (FFS) and the PreDoc Funding Scheme (PFS).
The PRSS was introduced by the University in 2001. The Business School contributes a significant amount of funds toward this scheme each year. The PRSS aims to provide opportunities for currently enrolled Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil) students to:
PhD candidates are entitled to claim a maximum three times during their candidature up to a maximum of $3,000 per claim and MPhil candidates are entitled to have one claim. There are two application rounds per year: Please refer to the calendar of important dates for application dates and the University PRSS webpage for further information.
The Business School Research Committee recently approved a scheme to help fund fieldwork for PhD and MPhil students. The scheme is designed to provide an additional source of funding to that of the Postgraduate Research Support Scheme (PRSS) and is available at a Business School level. As there are limited funds available, the awarding of funds is competitive and based on merit, with all submissions reviewed by a subcommittee of the Business SchoolResearch Committee.
Students are eligible to apply to the FFS only within three years from the commencement of the full-time candidature (pro rata part-time). Students under suspension and examination are not eligible.
Applications for the funding open in August. Please refer to the calendar of important dates for more information. Details on how to apply will be emailed to all current candidates when the funding round opens.
The Business School Research Committee has approved a scheme to help fund PhD and MPhil students to write research papers while their thesis is out for examination. The objective of the initiative is to allow students time to prepare papers from their thesis research as well as initiate new research projects with their supervisory team or other academics in the Business School. As limited funds are available, the awards are competitive and will be reviewed by a subcommittee of the Business School Research Committee.
