  *   Available to Australian and New Zealand citizens or Australian permanent residents.
  *   Applicants must be enrolled, or intend to enroll for a Masters by Research or a Research Doctorate at CSU on a full-time or a part-time basis.
  *   Applicants should hold or expect to hold at least a Bachelor degree with upper second class honours or a qualification deemed equivalent, in philosophy or a cognate discipline.
  *   Applicants will commence a Masters by Research or Research Doctorate at CSU in 2016, or be currently enrolled in a Higher Degree by Research program.
  *   Applicants need to have their enrolment into the proposed Higher Degree by Research program accepted by CSU.  (Applications for enrolment can be made on line here: http://futurestudents.csu.edu.au/apply/apply-now)
  *   The proposed topic of the Masters by Research or the Research Doctorate must align with an area of CAPPE's research focus and the proposed principal supervisor must be a member of CAPPE (CSU).
Scholarships will not be available to those who:

  *   Are receiving another equivalent award in the form of a scholarship or salary from the Australian Government or its statutory authorities;
  *   Have already completed a degree at the same or higher level;
  *   Have previously had more than 6 months of a Commonwealth-funded postgraduate research scholarship.
Award value
The scholarship covers university tuition fees and the scholarship recipient will be allocated an allowance per session of enrolment to assist with the reimbursement of costs associated with conducting their research studies.

Award duration
The award is normally for 2 years full-time (four (4) years part-time equivalent) study for Masters by Research and for 3 years full-time (six (6) years part-time equivalent) study for a Research Doctorate.  Periods of study already undertaken towards the degree prior to commencement will be deducted from the period of tenure.
An extension of up to two (2) years part-time study may be granted for Research Doctorate candidates where the University is satisfied that the extension is based on grounds that are beyond the control of the candidate and related to their research rather than of a personal nature.
