This quarterly round applies to candidates who will be submitting their thesis between 1st January 2017 and 31 March 2017.
Please note changes to the PPA's for 2017.
- As of Round 1, 2017 the PPA award will be for a maximum of 8 weeks (previously 12 weeks), in line with the examination duration. This change will also allow MGE to offer additional PPAs in 2017.
- Ten applicants (previously 6 applicants) from each faculty may be nominated for each PPA round.
The PPA 2017 Guidelines and Round 1 Nomination Form are now available on the website.
The PPA scheme is designed to encourage graduate research students to disseminate their research findings through publication in professional journals or books. The scheme provides an income equivalent to the APA rate for eight weeks. It is aimed at supporting students who, having submitted their thesis, wish to write up some of their research for publication whilst they await the result of their thesis examination.
Full details (guidelines and application form) are available on the MGE intranet – http://intranet.monash.edu.au/graduate-education/admissions-scholarships/scholarships/grants/ppa.html
Please note that preference is given to students who submit their thesis within three‐and‐ a‐half years (42 months, effective full‐time) of commencing a doctorate or two years (24 months Effective Full Time) of commencing a master’s. Where this time limit is exceeded, the supervisor must make a case within the application as to why this overrun has occurred, even if by a few days.
