The Victoria PhD Submission Scholarship supports doctoral students in the final three months of their research.
By facilitating full concentration upon their studies, it is meant to enable students already enrolled for several years to bring their research to a successful completion.
Students currently enrolled half-time are particularly encouraged to apply.

Half-time candidates must change their enrolment to full-time and commit themselves exclusively to their research.
The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit, which shall include an assessment of the applicant's ability to complete the dissertation within the specified timeframe.
