Preventing Harmful Drug Use In Australia

Research Bursaries for Honours and Masters Students
2015 Round

As part of NDRI's role in developing national capacity in research into preventing drug-related harm, the Institute offers co-supervision for honours and masters level students who wish to conduct research in the alcohol and other drug (AOD) field.

As part of this endeavour, applications are invited for research bursaries from students currently enrolled in a health or relevant social science course at honours or masters level intending to conduct a research project in the AOD field.

Applicants should have a good undergraduate record and will be required to have a departmental research supervisor in their own school, with co-supervision being offered by an NDRI staff member. At the completion of their project bursary recipients are expected to submit a paper based on their research for publication in a refereed journal.

The Bursaries

Two NDRI honours and masters research bursaries will be offered in 2015. Each of the two bursaries is valued at up to $2500. They may be used to support any bona fide research activity connected with the recipient's honours or masters project. For example, this could include contributions towards subject recruitment (e.g. advertising), reimbursement of subjects, data analysis, report writing or travel and registration for presentation of the findings to a relevant national or international conference.

The closing date for applications is 5pm January 30, 2015. For more information, including the selection criteria, download the information sheet.
