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 Scholars ($22,860). 


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.
