The CIS scheme will contribute an amount equal to the value of the industry funding, up to the value of $15,000 per annum. Successful applicants would be expected to have an industry agreement in place prior to the scholarship commencing.
Applications will open at the end of February, with a closing date of 31 August 2013.

The Elite Editing Thesis Write-up Scholarship provides financial assistance for one postgraduate student per year for a period of 12 weeks to free them from other forms of employment and allow them to concentrate solely on the task of writing their thesis.
For students who do not hold another scholarship, it pays a stipend of $1,000 per fortnight for six fortnights ($6,000 in total), tax free. For students who do hold another scholarship, it pays a stipend of $600 per fortnight for six fortnights ($3,600 in total), tax free.
