PhD/ECR Workshop & Bursaries

PhD Scholars and Early Career Researchers (completed a PhD within the past five years) are invited to attend the annual Bill Faulkner PhD/ECR Workshop held immediately prior to the CAUTHE 2015 Conference on Monday 2 February, also at the Gold Coast campus.

PhD and ECR Bursaries

CAUTHE invites PhD Scholars and Early Career Researchers to submit bursary applications for the CAUTHE 2015 conference. The aim of the scheme is to provide benefits to Chapter and individual members, encourage membership and encourage the submission of full refereed papers for the annual conference.

The bursaries will comprise conference registration, PhD or ECR workshop fees and up to $1000 for travel and accommodation expenses. Awards will be announced at the conference with a formal certificate at the conference dinner. Submitted papers must be accepted as a full refereed paper, with the applicant as the primary author, and the only acceptable co-authors being the author's registered supervisors.
