The Crohn’s & Colitis Australia IBD PhD Scholarships are created to address the CCA strategic priority of building inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) research capacity in Australia whilst we search for a cause or cure for IBD. The award is designed for candidates at an early stage in their careers, for example (but not confined to) graduates in any health care discipline or science who are seeking to pursue doctoral studies. 

It is preferred that applicants intend pursuing a career in gastroenterology, specifically related to IBD.  Preference is given to proposals that align with the priority areas of CCA as listed below:

  • Cause or cure
  • Diagnosis
  • Prevention
  • Better disease management and improved well being
  • Epidemiology
