The primary goals of the Macquarie University Postgraduate Research Fund (PGRF) are: to add value to the research thesis; to provide postgraduate research students with the means to enhance their research experience; to gain firsthand experience of the grant writing process; and, to receive feedback from assessors during the interview, which is part of the fund's assessment process.
Applicants must be currently enrolled Macquarie University HDR students. Applicants should usually be in the third or later second year of doctoral enrolment or early second year of MPhil enrolment, with significant research results achieved. Selection is based on academic merit and financial need.
The grant is valued at up to $5,000. The fund is intended to enhance the postgraduate experience and add value to the thesis; it is not to be used to meet basic research and infrastructure costs associated with the applicant's candidature.
