The Australian POTS Foundation (APF) is committed to supporting a brighter future for people with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) through advocacy, support, and research. We strive to improve awareness and education of those with POTS, their families, clinicians and support services.

 

In 2022 the APF is offering PhD top-up scholarships to Australian researchers whose primary research project, directly targets Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS).

 

To be eligible applicants must be:

  • Enrolled full time in a PhD program at an Australian University
  • Residing in Australia for the tenure of their PhD program
  • A recipient of an Australian Government RTP grant, NHMRC scholarship or similar
  • No more than 18 months into their PhD program at the time of application. (Pro-rata payments will apply accordingly)

 

The scholarship:

  • Comprises $5,000 per year for a maximum of three years. A total commitment of up to $15,000 per successful candidate.
  • Applications will be assessed, and successful candidates selected by the Australian POTS Foundation Medical Advisory Panel.
  • Assessment will be based on
    • the academic record of the applicant,
    • the recommendation of their supervisor with regards to their suitability for research training, and
    • the research track record of the primary supervising institution.
  • Applicants will be required to provide annual progress reports to the AFP Board.

It is the Australian POTS Foundations intention to make payment directly to the successful candidate.
