In 2019, approximately $24,000 is available to support student-led initiatives intended to enhance the academic experience and outcomes of Higher Degree by Research (HDR) programmes. 

The funding can be used to support a range of creative and innovative academic activities which enrich the HDR experience and contribute to the development of HDR communities at the University.  In addition to the benefit of the activities themselves, the scheme processes are designed to support the development of skills in project management, proposal writing and project evaluation.  This year the scheme is aimed at “Engaged Researchers make Better Researchers: Connecting HDR researchers to community and industry”

Creativity, collaboration, independence and personal initiative are all important outcomes of a PhD. Students are invited to apply these skills in conceiving suitable activities for funding under this scheme.  Examples of possible initiatives include:
  • Disciplinary or interdisciplinary seminars with guest speakers;
  • Student run conferences;
  • Weekend thesis writing ‘Boot camp’;
  • Understanding the publishing landscape (ERA, quality metrics, digital identities);
  • Seminars on how research can be re-made for different audiences (scholarly, professions, public, media);
  • Postdoc mentoring schemes for PhDs;
  • Developing a teaching and research portfolio for an academic job.
Each grant is valued up to $1,200.
