In July last year Tony Naughton, my Head of School, unexpectedly passed away. He was the most sensible university administrator I have ever encountered. To commemorate his life and contribution to RMIT University, a memorial PhD scholarship has been established.
In recognition of Professor Tony Naughton, Head of School Economics Finance and Marketing from 2003 to 2013, the School has established a PhD scholarship program for an outstanding candidate in one of the disciplines offered by the School.
Candidates are expected to hold a good first degree or Master’s degree in one of Economics, Finance or Marketing or a related field.
In order to be eligible for scholarship, you must have a first class honours or first class honours equivalent.
Location: City Campus
Scholarship Tenure: 3 years full time
Scholarship Value: $32,000 per annum full time rate (tax-free stipend; equivalent of current Australian Postgraduate Award rates + RMIT top-up). Prospective international students should note that the scholarship does not cover foreign student tuition fees. The student will further be provided with travel grants to present his/her work at international conferences and the opportunity to spend some time at an overseas university.
Applicants will be considered provided that they fulfil the criteria for PhD admission and scholarship of RMIT University and demonstrate excellent research capacity.
