The Alfred Deakin Research Institute is offering a new Alfred Deakin Worldly Ideas PhD scholarship relating to the broad research field of 'Egalitarianism in Australia and settler societies'. The Alfred Deakin Worldly Ideas PhD scholarship recalls the power of Alfred Deakin's ideas for Australia and Australian politics, and this offer links to the Institute's involvement in an international project on egalitarianism in comparative contexts.

The Award is for full-time study and successful applicants must have completed at least four years of tertiary education studies and have achieved a first class Honours degree or equivalent.  Awards are only available to those who will be undertaking a Masters or Doctoral degree in 2014 and who:

  • are Australian or New Zealand citizens or have been granted Australian permanent resident status; and
  • are normally enrolling as on-campus full-time students, however permission may be granted for other locations; and
  • are not receiving another equivalent award, scholarship or salary to undertake the proposed program (generally less than seventy-five per cent of the base Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) rate); and
  • have not held a Commonwealth Government-funded postgraduate research scholarship (excluding IPRS) or Deakin University Postgraduate Research Scholarship (DUPR) unless it was terminated within six months of the scholarship commencing; and
