A change of direction…

This year, MUPSA Committee is unable to offer the PhD Completion Scholarship and Small Research Support Grants. Instead, MUPSA Committee will meet the postgrads’ needs through a stronger focus on doing more advocacy and student engagement by providing activities including social events and employability workshops.

In this way not only a few students benefit.

MUPSA PhD Completion Scholarship

In 2014, MUPSA, in conjunction with Graduate Research, offered a Completion Scholarship for a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) candidate who had come to the end of their scholarship funding, but needed a little assistance in order to reach the stage of thesis submission.

The maximum value of the award was $5,000, and was paid in three installments. The first installment was $2,000 upon approval of the award, the subsequent two installments were: up to $1,500 on completion of the milestone and the third would be paid on submission of the thesis for examination.

MUPSA Small Research Support Grant 

In 2014, MUPSA offered Small Research Support Grants for graduate research students who had exhausted most of their maintenance funds, but needed a little assistance to further their research.

The maximum value of the award was $500, with 4 grants available per custom writing service research semester. The Grant could be used to cover fieldwork expenses, conference attendance, books, research incidentals, and other relevant research events (e.g. workshops or symposia).

Eligible students were those enrolled in a PhD, MPhil, LLM (Res), RMT & MEd (Res), EdD, DIT, DPsych or DVetMedSc program. Masters by Coursework students were eligible to apply only if they were completing a 12 credit point thesis.
