Support and Funding

Scholarships, prizes, bursaries and travel funds

In addition to living stipends and fee remission scholarships, the Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences offers several scholarships and prizes to RHD students.

Students enrolled in the clinical resident program are supported to attend conferences during their candidature by the 'Veterinary Hospital Conference Travel Fund'.

For confirmed graduate researchers in PhD and master by research courses, the Faculty provides support to for students to present their research at a conference through the 'Student Travel Award Scheme' (STAS).  This scheme provides up to $1,500 for PhD students and $750 for master by research students.  A call for applications is made each year, in June.

Additionally, each year there is a call for applications for the Faculty's RHD student prizes. These are competitive awards, assessed on the basis of academic excellence demonstrated during candidature.
