Postgraduate Research Fund (PGRF)
The Postgraduate Research Fund is the main source of central funding for enrolled research candidates in addition to the substantial Faculty funding. It is an internal fund and aims to encourage high quality research in all areas of the University through assistance to research candidates. Applications are considered on a competitive basis taking into account the individual merit and need, as outlined in the applicant’s case. The Fund is designed to assist in covering costs including:
- attendance at an international/national research conference to present a paper/poster;
- archival and resource visits supplementary to the essential research;
- access to specialised instruments or equipment.
The limit of a PGRF grant is currently $5,000 and it is available once only during the period of candidature. Funding applications are generally made towards the end rather than at the beginning of candidature.
