The scholarships available through our centre

The Charles Perkins Centre offers a number of research scholarships that are open to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The Centre also offers a PhD scholarship opportunity.

An exciting PhD scholarship opportunity is now open for applications.

The Community Pharmacy – Research into Policy PhD Scholarship was created to promote the integrity of the pharmacist as a public health professional. The project will be part of the multidisciplinary program on Research Integrity and Science Policy with a dual focus:

  1. Describing cultural, social, corporate, political and other influences on the design, conduct and dissemination of research
  2. Conducting cutting edge methodological research to advance the science of evidence synthesis and use of evidence syntheses for policy decisions.

This highly competitive scholarship will be awarded to a student who will be undertaking full-time postgraduate study by research through the Faculty of Pharmacy based at the Charles Perkins Centre.

Please visit the Postgraduate Research Scholarships page for more information and to apply.

Please note: a new PhD scholarship opportunity will become available in the near future.

The summer scholarships program is open to all University of Sydney undergraduate and postgraduate coursework students, from any area of study and with any level of research experience.

Our summer scholarships provide students an exclusive opportunity to join the Centre’s mission and undertake paid research with leading academics in world-class facilities. Successful candidates will develop research skills, gain experience and contribute to finding real world solutions through eight weeks of paid research.

Your research project will contribute to the understanding, management or prevention of the individual and societal impacts of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and related conditions.

The program has been running for the past five years, fostering more than 50 undergraduate and postgraduate coursework students from all disciplines across the University.

The CPC 2017/2018 Summer Research Scholarships are open now.
