We would like to draw your attention to this year’s Australian Bicentennial Scholarships and Fellowships, offered by the Menzies Centre for Australian Studies at King’s College London. The Scholarships and Fellowships are one-off awards of up to £4,000 to enable UK postgraduate students or academic staff to undertake a period of research/study in Australia.
These schemes are also open to Australian postgraduate students and academic staff wishing to come to the UK.
An applicant for a Scholarship must be registered as a post-graduate student at an Australian or UK tertiary institution. He/she should normally have at least an upper second class honours degree.
An applicant for a Fellowship should have a good post-graduate degree or equivalent experience, and should be seeking to further his/her education or professional experience but not through taking a further degree.
Further information for applicants and application forms can be found at http://www.kcl.ac.uk/artshums/ahri/centres/menzies/scholarships/absf/index.aspx. Applications are now being accepted and the final date for submission is Monday 28 April 2014.
We would be grateful if you could disseminate details of these awards to your staff and students.
