The Archbishop Mannix Travelling Scholarship
Applications are invited from male and female graduates of an Australian University for the Newman College Archbishop Mannix Travelling Scholarship. The duration of the scholarship (for a post-graduate course at an overseas university) is two years, but it may be extended to three years. The scholarship is currently valued at $A50,000 p.a.
In order to be eligible for consideration, a candidate should:
- intend to pursue an academic career in Australia;
- give evidence of capacity for successful research;
- possess the qualities of character and general ability which would justify the hope of his or her becoming a competent member of the teaching staff of a Tertiary Institute and a well-reputed Catholic in that office;
- satisfy the Selection Committee that his or her financial position warrants a grant from the Fund.
Applications close on 15 December, 2017.
The Scholarship is awarded every two or three years. The next award will be made late in 2017. The scholar will take up the award in September, 2018.
Preference is given to applicants who are graduates of the University of Melbourne, although the award may be made to graduates of other Australian universities.
