The Science Industry PhD Fellowships program is an initiative under the State Government’s New Industries Fund which supports PhD candidates to collaborate with an industry partner in a high growth area. Under the program, PhD candidates will undertake a PhD research project on a topic agreed to by a company, the candidate and the host university. The nominated company will host the PhD candidate for a period agreed to by the candidate, host institution and company.

Up to 24 fellowships will be awarded over a three year period, with each fellowship providing up to $10,000 per annum over the period of the PhD (three years) to selected students for undertaking a PhD that addresses relevant industry problems or creates new opportunities.

For further information, including how to apply, visit the New Industries WA website. Applications for 2018 have now closed and will reopen in 2019.
