The Faculty of Science Postgraduate Writing-Up Awards support eligible Science research higher degree (RHD) candidates during the preparation of journal articles or books based on the graduate research thesis submitted for examination.
Graduate research students in the Faculty of Science at the University of Melbourne are eligible to apply upon submission of their RHD thesis for examination.
• Eligible candidates must have submitted their thesis within THREE YEARS AND TEN MONTHS (FTE). Approved leave periods are not included in this.
• The awardee may not hold a similar award for the same purpose; awards cannot be deferred.
• Awardees should not undertake full-time or substantial regular part-time employment during the tenure of the award (more than 10 hours per week is considered ‘substantial regular parttime work’).
• The award does not assist students during the writing up of their thesis for submission.
• The candidature must not have been lapsed.
• Eligible international students must commit to spending at least 66% of their time in Melbourne during the writing up of articles and must ensure that their visa allows them to stay in the country – upon submission of their thesis they are an un-enrolled student. International students must also comply with any contractual obligations they may owe to an employer or sponsor, particularly those obligations relating to the period to be spent in their home country following completion of their studies. Students returning to their home country following submission of their thesis will not be eligible to apply unless they meet the requirements noted above (ie. 66% of their time in Melbourne).
