The Frank Perry Travelling Scholarship in Engineering was established in 1974 as a result of a gift to the University of Adelaide from the Trustees of the Frank and Hilda Perry Trust.  A number of awards are available annually to support higher degree by research students in engineering who present study-related research at peer-reviewed conferences (interstate or overseas).

Eligibility: Applicants must be Australian citizens/permanent residents of Australia or international students who are currently enrolled in:

  • the second year full-time of a MPhil (or part-time equivalent) in engineering; or
  • the second or third year full-time of a PhD (or part-time equivalent) in engineering.

Please refer to the Scholarship Rules for further eligibility requirements.

The amount of award to individual applicants and the number of Scholarships available may vary from year to year, depending on the available funds and the number of applications.  The total amount available for awards in 2020 is $45,000.

Scholarship recipients with caring responsibilities may apply for support from the ECMS Dependant Travel Fund
