This scholarship is funded by the Antarctic Research Centre to commemorate the Centre’s 50th Anniversary. The scholarship has been established to fund a Masters student to research a topic in the history of the Antarctic Research Centre, and is expected to generate oral history recordings for use in the thesis and for subsequent deposit in an archive. While the student will be expected to work within the broad topic of the 50 year history of the Antarctic Research Centre, there is scope to focus on specific aspects of this history according to the student’s interest.
This scholarship is for a student enrolling in a Masters by thesis degree under the supervision of Rebecca Priestley, from the Centre for Science in Society.
Value: $22,000 stipend, plus fees
The scholarship is open to applicants who, in the year of tenure will be enrolled as a Master's student on a research topic on the history of the Antarctic Research Centre. Ideally, the successful student will be science literate and will have studied history at tertiary level but this is an interdisciplinary project and we welcome students from a broad range of disciplinary backgrounds.
The recipient will be selected by a panel consisting of the Centre for Science in Society and the Antarctic Research Centre.
The successful student must agree to be profiled in Antarctic Research Centre publicity material.
