HDR Scholarship Opportunity

Tuesday, March 31st, 2020

The NCSEHE is inviting applications for a HDR scholarship

The NCSEHE (National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education) is a research and policy centre funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment, and based at Curtin University.

The Centre engages in a diversity of activities but key to its operations is strengthening Australia’s research quality, capability and capacity within the higher education equity field.

The successful candidate will have a passion for social justice and equity issues with a commitment to, or involvement in, activities related to this area.

Given the Centre’s equity agenda we would welcome applicants from more diverse backgrounds who may have taken more circuitous routes through higher education due to financial, employment or caring responsibilities.

More information and applications can be found on the NCSEHE website.
