For staff of Alfred Health who are
graduates in Medicine, Science, Nursing or Allied Health.
The proposed research must take place within
Alfred Health/The Alfred
campus, with supervision or co-supervision by a senior Alfred Health staff member.
To be eligible for an Alfred Research Trusts Postgraduate
Research Scholarship it is mandatory to apply for an NHMRC Postgraduate Research
Scholarship. Applicants should also apply for funding from other appropriate external
funding bodies, such as the Heart Foundation.
A scholarship may be awarded to an applicant
whose ranking is just below the cut-off point to receive NHMRC funding.
The annual stipends are set at NHMRC levels for
Postgraduate Medical Research Scholars ($34,036 pa) and for Biomedical Research
Scholarships are initially awarded for one year, but
subject to satisfactory progress, may be renewed. The maximum period of the
award will be three years if initial postgraduate degree enrolment is concurrent with
commencement of the Scholarship. It is expected that recipients of Alfred
Trusts scholarships will continue to apply for NHMRC funding.
Applications for Alfred Trusts
Postgraduate Scholarships commencing in 2012 are closed.
