The Faculty of Law, UNSW Sydney, wishes to offer a PhD Scholarship to support a candidate with outstanding research potential in the Law of the Sea. It is intended that the successful applicant will commence their studies in Term 1 of 2021. The Scholarship is to support a specific Faculty member and their project (see details below).
The stipendiary component of the scholarship shall be equivalent to the value of the yearly RTP Scholarship rate (for 2020, this rate is AUD $28,092 p.a.), together with Faculty top-up (AUD $5,000 p.a.).
Where an international applicant is selected for a Scholarship, the Faculty will support an application for a Tuition Fee Scholarship (TFS) to meet the cost of international tuition fees, provided the applicant meets the criteria for the award of a TFS. The award of the Scholarship will be conditional on the award of the TFS.
Applicants may be Australian citizens, permanent residents or international.
Students currently enrolled in or holding an offer to commence a full-time PhD in the UNSW Faculty of Law in 2021 may apply, provided that, by the application deadline, they shall have been enrolled for no longer than twelve months and they are not already holding or have been offered a scholarship for study at UNSW.
The Scholarship is for study on a full-time basis only, unless there are exceptional personal or medical circumstances that would require study on a part-time basis for all or part of the PhD program. This Scholarship is not open to students already enrolled in a PhD program elsewhere.
