General Goal

To attract to the University of New England very able candidates to undertake postgraduate research in Classics.

An acceptable awardee

The candidate must have an outstanding first degree from any university in Greek language or literature, or Classics, and intend to pursue postgraduate research in any area of ancient Greek or Joint Classics (Homer to the early Byzantine period), which involves strong focus on Greek language or literature.

Eligibility

  1. Preference will be given to an internal full-time PhD or MPhil candidate who holds an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) or University of New England Research Assistantship (UNERA). However, an external or part-time candidate may be considered if in that year there is no suitable internal full-time applicant.
  2. The applicant must be an Australian citizen normally resident in the country
  3. The scholarship may be held in conjunction with any other scholarships.

Value

$5,000 p.a. f/t (current expectation), or pro rata p/t. The award is available subject to there being no current internal incumbent and sufficient funds from the interest in hand. The award is payable each year in two equal installments, the first at the start of the candidature upon proof of enrolled status, the second 6 months later upon recommendation from the Head of School and the Supervisor confirming satisfactory progress.

Caveat

The holder of this Scholarship will be required to repay it if candidature is transferred to another University.
