As the Russian invasion of Ukraine enters its fourth month, Macquarie’s Graduate Research Academy has announced five scholarships will be offered to PhD applicants from the Ukraine whose plans for further academic study have been disrupted.
Successful applicants cannot be current Macquarie students, must be citizens of the Ukraine currently residing offshore, be qualified to undertake a Doctor of Philosophy program and they will ideally have confirmation of supervision from an eligible Macquarie University researcher.
The successful applicants will need to live in Sydney during their candidature and meet the HDR English Language requirements and admission criteria for the PhD.
The Academy has confirmed the scholarships will be awarded on a first come basis and the funding is available now.
The successful applicants will be awarded a Macquarie University Research Excellence Scholarship which includes a tuition fee offset for a maximum three years, worth between $111,600 – $142,800 and a three-year stipend at the Research Training Program rate which in 2022 is $28,854.
They will also receive funding for a single OSHC policy with Macquarie’s preferred provider, Medibank, worth $2742 and $2500 towards airfares to or from Australia.
The Academy has asked applicants to include a brief statement of impact, which addresses how they have been affected by the war in the Ukraine.
