The Australian Pain Society (APS) is a Multidisciplinary Society whose charter is to improve the education, research and development, diagnosis and treatment of all forms of pain. Australian Pain Relief Association (APRA) is a registered charity and works closely with the APS to support education and research in pain.
The Australian Pain Society and the Australian Pain Relief Association PhD Scholarships are awarded to enable full time research leading to a Doctor of Philosophy or equivalent, at any recognised Australian University. The funded project can be related to any aspect of the mechanisms, diagnosis or treatment of acute or chronic pain.
The applicant must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident and the applicant and his/her supervisor must be members of the APS.
Another scholarship available is the APRA Clinical Research Grant which funds a project that is related to any aspect of a childhood pain complaint - including theoretical, mechanistic, diagnostic, treatment, epidemiological and/or sociological approaches.
