WHS Supplementary Scholarships

The call for WHS Supplementary Scholarships for 2015-16 has closed.

The purpose of the SafeWork SA Work Health and Safety (WHS) Supplementary Scholarship program is to increase the momentum of high quality WHS research in South Australia by providing a financial incentive for new researchers to enter and remain in the WHS field.

Eligibility is restricted to potential new Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students. A WHS Supplementary Scholarship is awarded only to a student who is concurrently awarded an HDR scholarship. Applicants failing to win an HDR scholarship are not eligible for the WHS Supplementary Scholarship. 

The WHS Supplementary Scholarship provides a $10,000 per year addition to the HDR scholarship stipend for the full duration of the HDR scholarship. 

Generally, four new WHS Supplementary Scholarships are awarded each year. However, additional applications may be considered in exceptional circumstances.

Applications must be submitted using the SS2015-16 Application Template (RTF 83kb) and SS2015-16 Information for Applicants (PDF 253kb).

Strategic Relevance
Applications for WHS Supplementary Scholarships must address the priorities identified in the WHS Research Strategy for SafeWork SA - August 2015 (PDF 157kb), which supports all of the nationally endorsed priories in the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012 - 2022 (PDF 1290kb).
