Recently it came to my attention that candidates who have handed in their thesis and are currently under examination have experienced problems with access to ANU facilities. We have added a new category of “under examination” to your student record, so when you hand your thesis in you will still enjoy all the same privileges you have as a candidate. If you have an idea you would like me to hear, please get in touch with a member of my Student Consultative Committee. You can find out who your representatives are by contacting your college Student Services team.
Have you heard about the Endeavour scholarship program?
The Australian Government funds a small number of early career researchers to travel to other countries to undertake research projects. The Endeavour scholarship will pay travel costs, help you get established in your host country, cover your insurance and pay you a monthly $3000 stipend while you are there. ANU has a proud history of successful candidates for this prestigious award, so why not put up your hand? Visit the Endeavour scholarship site to learn more about this great opportunity from previous successful recipients. There will be an information session in May to help you put an application together – if you are interested in attending, register an expression of interest here so you can be kept informed.
