Department of Management and Marketing Journal Publication Scholarship

Overview

The scholarships are designed to support Department of Management & Marketing research higher degree (RHD) candidates during the preparation of journal articles or books based on the thesis submitted for their RHD. Conditions of the scholarship are determined by the Department of Management & Marketing as part of its research training program.

To be eligible, students must have submitted their RHD thesis within the maximum candidature period; priority will be given to students who submitted their thesis without extensions. Approved leave periods are not included in this. The scholarship does not assist students during the writing up of their thesis for submission.
